    Ok...I was given this pretty bird and I'm not sure if it's a roo or a hen. To me "she" looks like a hen. Was hatched out in April. I've always wanted one and so far I really like her. She's a nice bird personality wise but she definately isn't one that comes running up to you. Is that pretty common in the breed? It was hard to get

    BETTER PICTURES NOW LOCATED ON PAGE 2 OF THIS THREAD!!

    Thanks!!!

    I'll try to get some better day-light pictures tomorrow if that helps... I just don't see any spurs or anything starting that would make me think that Yoshie is a he.

    Hmmm.... i'll go out on a limb and say it looks rather roo-ish. But i dont know diddly about Shamos, so i may be wrong.

    I am going to say ROO [​IMG]
    The Legs are really thick for a pullet, the comb and tail feathers make me think Roo too....

    That's not even a chicken, it's a prehistoric giant bird.

    "She" is a he.
    Notice the red comb and wattles? Breeds like Shamo,Malays,and Asil have small combs,even cocks.
    He also has thick legs and a tail like a cock.
    He's adorable,by the way [​IMG]
