    Nice tom, but definitly not a pure narry, their feathers should be grey with a black tip.

    Sorry, looked like a juvie tom to me.

    I got 2 juvie hens right now and colour wise they are completely different, base colour grey with black edged feathers.

    Yours looks like it might be a bronzeXnarrie maybe?

    I'd have to agree it looks like a male. I don't know about the breed tho.

    Quote:Laugh all you want but this is a hen. Infact she was sitting on eggs that were no good when i picked her up. I guess you didnt know that some hens strut also.
