    up a little too close for me to be sure. LOL Mine...females have "rounded" head feathers...males are a "spikey". Males head feathers are not as rounded on top but kind of stick out in every which way. does that make any sense to you?
    ok, pics came completely in now for me and I still can't tell you for sure. [​IMG]

    I don't know...at first glance it looks like a hen, but there appear to be definite streamers flowing backward from it's crest. I say too early to tell.
