    First off I'm Britney thanks for letting me be a part of the group. I am a newbee to SLW and as so many others I am confused on how to tell the difference between hen/roo so if anyone can help me figure it out it would be greatly appreciated [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    hens. you can tell because the tail is not that big and the combs and wattles are small

    Also notice the broad, rounded back feathers. Males look much different.
