    I'm afraid my favorite hen is actually a rooster. They're only three months old, but this one looks like a rooster to me. Can I possibly

    His pattern makes it kinda harder, but those are very pointy saddle feathers coming in... I'm sorry, but he is a Roo... Looks like one of my EE Roos...

    Possibly the Australop that was in the background too.

    I thought so. He's the only one that doesn't mind being held. I'm so bummed.
