    Thanks! How can you tell? Someone said the male will have a redder head. But its strange, they will both change their head color more or less red. I keep looking for differences and they are so much alike I wasnt sure. Educate me please? :) Thanks folks! Are they black slate?

    They look black slate to me. The feathers on the back of the head, the lack of carnucles or a large snood make me think hens
