    I was thinking, At first this was a welsummer male, but now I'm not so sure. It has the cheeks and beard like an americana or an Easter egger. I was thinking male also, but again not I'm not sure[​IMG]

    That would be cool if it was female. Do males have the same cheeks and beards though.

    Males have a different coloring, more patchy... females are more of the same pattern. I believe males have bigger beards and muffs... that is me thinking again but I think I read that before. Also I don't know how old yours is but the comb didn't seem very red

    My gal is pretty nervous also... she was broody raised though by one of my other hens. I've used a lot of treats and time to earn more trust from her... we are in a better place:) Out just takes time, treats abd a lot of patience.

    that's an Easter egger pullet.

    beards and muffs aren't sex linked at all, so both genders are equally likely to have them.
