How to tell different between rooster and hen Swedish Flower hens?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by my2boysteacher, Aug 5, 2013.

  1. I am going to look at one, hoping to get a hen. Seller thinks it is a hen, but is there a good way to know? It is about 5 months old. Anyone have a pic of hens and roosters that age so I can see the difference?
    Thanks!

    There is the Feathersite page for the flower hens. They have pictures of both sexes. The SFH are single combed and at 5 months there should be a pretty obvious difference in the comb and feathers, the pointy saddle feathers especially with the more solid color look.
