    Thanks so much for the response and to everyone for your help.
    Esperanza happens to be my favorite and I'm so glad I get to keep her. I can't have a roo where I live. I have four and she is the only one that follows me and lets me handle her. 2 of them I can't even touch without them freaking out.

    Your Esperanza reminds me of Lexie, who is now going on four years old. Here is Lexie at 11 weeks old. See that tail? Those long feathers fell out and suddenly, she was girly-looking, even though she is light colored for a BR hen.

    Not all bending feathers are elongated sickles.

    Here is my BR CiCi pullet. I think she is about 14 or 15 weeks old. She has that same bend. I have assumed she is a she based upon her coloring.

    CiCi isn't a Barred Rock. Looks like a Dominique (rose comb rather than single).

    Cyn is spot on again. CiCi looks like a Dominique!
