Hellooo

As suggested by NellyG, I am posting now pictures of my little hen who I always thought was a girl, but now I am not so sure any more. She is 10 weeks old.

Here you can see a picture of her 12 days ago. She was younger but easier to take in photo ;) :

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for your help. I realise how crappy the pictures are, I will try and add more next time I have got time for pictures.
One funny thing that one chook did recently, it's that new bunch of feathers which you can see on the last picture. She used to be all black and white, and now she has these tiny bits of yellow feathers in the lower back area, which I find pretty but once again it sounds like a boyish thing to do (I think I read that boys were slower on feather growth).
