    I will try to snag some images of the little bugger after I post this, but "he" is about a month old, small yellow/black comb, black legs and beak. We though the fella was going to be black but the beginning of silver feathers on his neck make me feel like its a little Birchen instead! I am super excited and white he does act like a little dude I was wondering if there was a chance he indeed was a lady and therefore I could keep him? Can you tell gender by colour as far as a Birchen OEGB? do the boys have like mroe white or less or something?
