    I am just wondering if some people could give me some tips on how to sex mountains.
    So far I hear hens have more brown towards their neck and males are grayish or blueish, on their necks.
    The two feathers on their heads: the male's are longer.
    And males seem to walk more upright.
    I tried all of those methods and none seem to work for me, so I am wondering if someone knows of another way to sex them.
    thanks
