    I understand looking for the dots on Phoenix chests. What is it about #1 that let's y'all know it's a girl? As we're looking at her tush and not her chest - is it still coloring looked for or it it a shape thing?

    the head/neck markings suggest a hen . there's no white to speak of and no throat lines or white bib either in #1
