    I think they're girls. can you get pictures..? it would be better than the vids. Make sure you get some of their faces, and some showing they're backs just before the tail.

    SEE.... I was wondering same thing because even though it looks like a girl.. its legs got sort of spurs coming and he/she hold itsself differnt then the other one. I flat out have no idea. I got a few 5 week olds that I can surely tell some of the rooster but these ones I posted the one is a girl but the other might be a rooster in drag... heheh

    Here are still pics, the pics with one is the drag queen in question

    I agree about the suspect tail feathers, but wouldnt you see a really red face by now??? I'm still thinking pullet unless s/hes a late bloomer

    They're both pullets, Did the low tailed one swallow a string or something?

    Hi Pine Cove, The one with the low tail seemed to be very sick for some reason. She was tucking her head way under and walking backwards. There is a thread in the emergency and diseases thread with a little vid near the end to show what she does. She seems to have got a lot better but she still does it. She is on vitamin water, duramycyn 10 and higher protien feed. Hopefully it straightens her out. But to answer your question, I really dont know if she ate something she shouldnt have or something else went wrong with her. Joey
