    So it's definitely the head of the flock, but at 20 weeks, no egg and no crow. What do you think? king or queen?

    That's a queen, you may just need to wait a little while longer, say any day to a week from now. [​IMG]

    Good! I was nervous becasue her tail feathers do the curl over. What do you think? Keep her and her 2 20 weekers locked in the coop longer in the am?

    Just let her run her course. She looks like a Wyandotte, and my Wyandottes at that age had curled tail feathers too - LOTS of pullets do. Also, you really shouldn't expect an egg to come until about 21 weeks of age. [​IMG]

    Matter of fact - My Wyandottes looked identical to her at that age.
