    I have one I am hoping is a hen too! Bigger comb than her sister and bigger wattles too. Also the bumps on legs...can't tell if the saddle feathers are pointy or not!
    fingers crossed for you (and ME)!

    That looks very similar to my girl "Red" (AKA Big Red). Only difference is her comb flopped over. 18-19 weeks old no eggs yet but I am expecting her to start laying first. Beautiful girl and thanks for sharing the pics!
