    I had a New Hampshire who looked very similar, and I could have sworn she was a roo until the day she laid an egg last year! She has a huge, bright red comb and wattles, black tail feathers that were longer than her flockmates, and she even crowed! I got 2 roosters about a month ago, and she happily turned the flock guardian role over to them. She stopped crowing, her comb is no longer bright red, and she is laying a lot more eggs.
