    [​IMG]This easter egger's tail was the first feathers to develop. Her sister was always bigger and had more feathers. I was guaranteed both were hens but with the copper color and long tail I'm wondering if it's a roo. Anyone wanna take a guess? [​IMG]

    Looks like a pullet to me. I'll bet she matures a lot like my old hen

    I have a little cockerel who is this same coloring, the brown and blue. I don't have a pic of him available, but you can see quite a difference in the color. He's got bright patches on the wings/shoulders and some in the tail, plus a big triple row comb.
