|Broken bar. This one turned|
out to be a male Splendid.
|Rhett Jr. is definitely a male Rosy Bourke. All my male|
Rosies exhibit a white stripe under their wing. This is
not a valid way to identify sex in a Bourke.
|Sugar, a Rosy Bourke hen. The underside of her wing |
is very much like the male Rosy Bourke's. Her face is
darker, which is often the case with hens vs. cocks.
|Spicy, who is mated to Sugar above, is a Normal male Bourke.|
Notice that under his wing there isn't any white bar.
That's different from the male Rosy Bourkes in my flock.
