    For the most part your correct but not 100% true. [​IMG]

    Not my birds/pictures

    This is Hennie American Gamefowl. Roosters that have the Henny Feathering Gene (Hf) can have the same plumage color and pattern as a hen.

    Do you think the one in the third pic is a pullet also? She has a small comb and just looks more rooster-like.
