    Henny Penny is my crazy, lovable chick who was escape artist cuddle bug extroidnaire. I was told the dot on the head assured female but a sudden growth spurt makes Henny look a little Roo-like.

    Out to pasture
    Photos are not clear, and trying to see birds through wire is the pits. Would you take new photos with " henny or not," facing forward so we can see the extent and color of comb.

    Also a standing profile to check for other gender features, leg color etc.

    Thanks. I was told that the RI reds and the Barred rocks are supposed to be the same size. Penny looks huge compared to Ashy, and it's all happened in the last week or so....should I be worried about my BR's lack of growth? Penny was initially slightly smaller than Ashy.
