A young Vosmaeri hen can be identified easily. A true Vos hen, at a young age will have fine yellow feathering on the edge of her red feathers. Once the hen has gone through her first moult, the yellow edging will disappear for good.

The Vosmaeri cocks outer tail feathers are exactly the same colour as their outer primary wing feathers.
