    I posted pics of this bird before and you guys concluded it was a low percentage spalding and a lot of you said it was a hen I just want to get a definitive answer because I am thinking of selling it and want to be sure.
    The bird in question is in the center

    i am no expert by any means, im suprised you were told it was a hen, i would say a male because of the barring on the back and feathers. the one on the left that has no barring is a hen. thats how i was told to tell the difference.. i'm interested to see what others with more experience say

    though it does seem to have less color in the neck... hmmmm [​IMG]

    That is a hen I am pretty sure, the one in the back looks more like a male. The hen is a low percentage spalding right?

    Look like a spalding hen to me spalding hen will have some barring.
