Hi Peter, I take it is the hens that are more difficult to tell apart? James.

Hi Peter, been looking at some photos, I do prefer the Eastern, looks a cleaner cut bird. James.

Hi Peter, proper action I would think, the last thing you want is a possible egg-binding with the low temperatures at the moment. James.
