    What do you think? Banshee is tinier than the others her age in fluffiness too and is built way different. she's a mutt so I get they can all look different but she sort of is built more like a roo than a hen with the slender body ( I also realize that certain breeds can have fluffier roosters as well) I just mean the general way this one carries itself in the yard is more rooster than hen..idk I could be wrong lol
    Banshee is quite the talker (hence the name) mostly sounds that could be mistaken as a fallen baby bird lol just a constant chirp day & night

    I noticed the other day her face is getting really red

    she was a late bloomer with the tail. but now that it is in it looks nothing like the others

    also has bright yellow cycle like feathers like the roosters had I ended up rid of.

    yes the father is an EE but the mother may not have been.. but I'm wondering if this is male or female?

    not a roo. if it was a roo then you would see way more comb and wattles along with pointed hackle and saddle feathers. this one is 100% pullet and looks like she is getting close to laying since she is starting to redden up
