    Here's two views of my cameo. Hope these help.
    I don't know what you need to see to determine sex.

    Yep, that's a hen. Barring on the bird's back or lack thereof is what to look for. This bird is loosing what bars she had while a male would be getting more. There are plenty of pics here for you to see the diff. She must be bred to a male that is cameo or split to cameo to get cameo males. She could produce more cameo hens and will be a good way to sex them at a very early age. I also have one with incubator burn on its head. Hope it fills in!

    The woman I bought her from thought she might be a pied because of that spot.
