    Looks like it could be a pullet. [​IMG] But i would think it would have more feathers on the head for a pullet.

    Quote:Yes they are two different birds. The first one has feathers on it's neck. The second has no feathering on the neck.

    Quote:Thanks for the information. I am hoping that I have a pair so that I will have some fertile show girl eggs at some point.
