    Hi,

    Sorry for the poor quality pics but this is the best I could get on my phone. This is my Light Sussex and he or she is 12 weeks old. I cant decide if it's a Roo or a Hen. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    It's the curl in the tail that got me thinking it was a Roo. But I've sen Hens with similar curls when searching on-line.

    Checking the birds tonight I noticed green tinged feathers in the tail. Is this still normal for a Sussex a hen?
