GLADYS

My husband frequently asks how do I tell the girls apart. Well, there are the obvious characteristics. Size, temperament, breed, sex, (well we're still on the fence about that one) and feathers.Well, one feather that is. Gladys is the Barred Rock with one rogue feather. With all this humid weather we are experiencing her tail feathers have taken on a mind of their own. I reassure her she's starting a fashion trend and to ignore all that snickering that goes on in the hen house. And besides her daddy knows her name.!

And what a lovely rogue feather that is, too! She's so pretty!
I tell my two Barred Rocks apart by their combs. Bippity's comb kind of falls over to the right and Boppity's comb sort of falls over to the left. It's not the kind of thing I can identify from a distance, but at least it's something. :-)
