    I cannot figure out how to put a picture on. My "hen" seems to be a rooster. No crowing yet, but I think I see a saddle with pointy feathers. Shouldn't I hear some crowing?

    Depends on how old the bird is. To post a picture, if you have a photobucket account, upload it there and then copy the IMG code and paste it here. Or you can directly upload the photo by clicking the little square button in the post editor box that has a little house and it will walk you through uploading a photo that way. A picture will really help us figure it out. Also, :welcome!

    Greetings from Kansas, Lesley, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here. I would offer my hen/rooster opinion but I'm only right half the time! [​IMG] Sure hope it turns out to be a hen!
