    Quote:Did you mean black feathers with green sheen? Yes both sexes should have black tails.

    Yes thats what I meant. 3 of mine dont have a green sheen to their tail feathers, but one of them does. It also happens to be bigger than the rest. I'm thinking its a roo :mad:

    Their comb will be a darker red too for the roosters. The hens comb is a light pink. They are very beautiful and grow very LARGE !![​IMG]
