    My EE is about 4 months old, was sold as a pullet, acts like a girl and isn't crowing, but his/her tail is curly and droopy like a roo's. What do you vote?

    Oh my gosh, guess I'll just have to wait for an egg or crowing! Is it common for a hen to have a tail like this?

    I have four EE hens, two of which had downturned tails just like this when they were young and are now laying beautiful green eggs. I vote pullet- there are no spikey/pointed neck feathers

    Do you have any pictures of them when they were younger and their tails made you wonder? I would really like to see them if you don't mind.
