    You know, she might just be a hen. Her legs are just so slender. How old is Emma?

    They were born approx sept 7. We knew nothing about how to sex them at one week old when we won them at the Hilbilly Fair lol. She is much smaller than the other buff orph., Boyd, he was the first of all 8 to crow. I will post a pic of him too

    The bird looks like a slower developing cockerel.
