What is the age?
Will be a year in either July or August, so approx 7/8 months.
It is pretty hard to say for sure on young whites, but I am leaning toward male. The tail supports are far longer than the tail, and this usually(but not always) indicates a male. Curious to hear what some others think. Very pretty either way, I have 3 mature white males and they are stunning when in full plumage.
I love these. With absolutely no knowledge to support it I will guess male. There appears to be fringe on the tail and it also looks to be heavier than a female at that age.
I'm going to go with male because the tail coverts or premature train appear to be going a little wispy. I do see tail feathers growing in. At this age it would be hard to try and use neck feather sexing.
The second picture tells me male, if it turns out to be a hen, it will end up being your best hen. Those suspect birds always turn out to be my best hens. Same goes for an aggressive male, they are usually my best roosters.
