Do iridescent green tail feathers on an EE mean roo for sure?

    Hey all. My suspected roo has now grown in some very pretty green tail feathers... girls don't get those, right? I can post more pics of course, but everyone here thought he was a roo two weeks ago... [​IMG] We're gonna miss him. Home in the country if he is a he!

    Quote:Post a pic or 2 again. I have girls with iridescent green tail feathers. My EE hen had them, and I have others with the same color tail feathers too. Depends on the shape/length of the feather.
