    Thats a hen, now sexing that one by flight feather, if a male they would have a rust color, she does look like she is losing the barring.

    Thanks deerman..nice to know i have at least 1 hen..however i was hoping that one would be a male.

    It has the white flights & white on both sides of the shoulders as well as underneath from the leggs back is all white..I know youve said split to white on that one..but does the addition of the white in other places now make her another color?

    The white flight feathers means Split to white or it is a Dark Pied..
