    Okay, so you probably heard about my Chicken named Harmony. We have been going back and forth about the gender. Now I'm really wanting the answer! I'll post a picture of her when she was young, and then her today, and some facts about Harmony and let's see if anyone has a clue! Thanks! (I'll just say "she" when I'm writing the facts)

    Okay: Harmony was VERY quiet as a Chick. Always loved to be cuddled. Definitely the quietest of the flock. Then started to crow at 6 weeks. Harmony's feathers are very dark. She doesn't have the extra layer of feathers near the tail that Roosters have. Her beak was pink for a few days after she hatched. She had the same Chick body as my Hen, unlike my Rooster.
    Here's the picture: (definitely Roosterly-looking, though....)
