    This is my bronze I hatched on the 12th of July from the pic does it look like a hen? I think so b/c of the lacing on the feathers, but am unsure. Sorry about the bad pic.

    If a poult that was hatched exactly 1 and 2 weeks after this one that still has the white/buff lacing also be hens or is it still too early to tell?

    would the younger 2 (1 and 2 weeks younger) that still have a lot of white lacing on their body and breast also be hens?

    I dont know to be honest.I cant tell .But the big one sure does look like a hen. By that age if it was a tom it should have more of a snood and carunkels I would think.I could be way off tho..
    My RP hen is 4 months old now and she looks just like yours.
    I havbe no clue on the feather issues.. lol I cant tell anything by looking at feathers. I leave that to the people hwo are in the know about it.
