    Sorry - no pic yet, but I have a 6 month old Americana, brownish, who has a BEARD! Anyone heard of this? I was thinking it was a rooster until I found her sitting in a nest box. So, definitely a hen, but never seen a beard before.

    Faverolles are a breed that have beards, they also have ear muffs, could be crossed with one.
