    I would think more wattle and comb and redder, too. Compared to the girls that are laying, Victor/Victoria's wattles/comb looks really light. When the "what gender am I" game first began with the entire flock, I was convinced it was a he...then after seeing the Real Deal with the one who died (he was a stunning roo) and how this bird is sort of hen-pecked by the GLWs...well, I decided it was a she and we named it Hattie. I guess we'll be rechristening the bird Harry...He's a very docile bird though and easy for our daughter to fool with so that's nice...hope it stays that way.

    Thanks for all the responses! [​IMG]
