    This is a little abandoned EE - that someone literally dumped out of a car at my feet - cross beak - well it will live at my place as a misfit. But gender?

    Pictures are small but from what I can see, it looks like a hen.

    Thank you and he is a handsome guy - there had been a cage of bantam EE's and i am thinking these people bought the lot and realized there was a cross beak and dumped it at my feet - what was i to do! I picked him up and he was shaking and he wrapped his neck into mine ! I was a goner

    Aw, bless you for taking pity on him and taking him in. He is 100% roo. Even with the small photos, the red leakage in the wing-bow is a dead giveaway.

    I hope you have found yourself a good friend in him [​IMG]
