    You need 10 post I think before you can add pic's. Then you click the upload at the top then after your pic is uploaded you copyand paste the image url to your post.

    You could go say "hi" to a lot of new folks really fast and get your 10 posts. I am looking forward to seeing your pictures.

    Quote:it does but i have also had hens with nice rooish tails. asked for a clearer pic of the head as to see the feathers around its neck, that will help determine sex [​IMG]

    I see a pullet in that photo, but it's not the greatest photo.
