    Could this pretty Hen be a Henry? She is crazy neurotic and a worrier. She/He is about 3.5 mos old...... an Easter Egger. Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    that tail is awfully shiny and green...and those saddle feathers are awful thin and pointy...I would lean towards roo, but those tail feathers are still pretty blunt....Im still guessing rooster.

    Henry is a handsome rooster and will get even more handsome as he matures.

    He's a worrier because the rooster's job is to protect his flock!

    My EE rooster is the dominant roo in my flock with MANY roosters and cockerels. He's a gentlemen with the ladies and a great flock protector.

    oh Man. I am worried to take it on perhaps because of the unknown, always had girls, and my sister just got her surprise Roo and he is quite vicious. But maybe we will let them free range if he is with them? We lost our last flock, 8 girls to a Fox family..... [​IMG]
