    I recently bought some Appeys for the first time and was wondering what sex either of them might be. I was hoping for one of each, (hen and roo) and it looks to me that they have several differences (one with more spots and a bigger hat in the first pic) but didn't know if these were indicators of sex. So here's the challenge; who can sex these three-week-old Spitzhaubens?

    Yeah, these have grown quite a bit, and I'm waiting for the first egg, now. Both turned out to be hens, and allow stroking once in a while. Even though My Easter Eggers of the same age jump in my lap and on my head!
