    We have just adopted four Freckle.jpg Nellie 2.jpg Nelly 1.jpg chickens and are really hoping for hens. Please help!? The brown one seems to have longish feathers on her saddle and the grey one doesn't? Or are they both girls? They are about 4 months old now...They are Boschveld chickens.

    I'm thinking Cockerel on the first.
    Could you get a saddle pic without wire in the way?

    I was worried the brown one looked more like a cockerel, but I'll try to get some more side pics without the wire.
