    Thanks everyone for the replys! The tail feathers throw me off to when i am trying to decide whos, who. At times the feathers will be sticking up, and at other times they will be flat. [​IMG] SO CONFUSING! [​IMG]

    I heard that the EE's are especially hard to figure out genders, until they are a lot older. Any truth to that? [​IMG]
