Hi, I am looking for someone to tell if the chicken is roster or hen(female), the breed is Buff Minorca 4 months old, We think its a roaster, but looking at many video's in you tube we're confused on similar appearance comparing with Hens(female) Or If someone can help us to give tips to identify by looking physically.

Minorcas can be tricky because of the size of comb they grow..... A females comb will bend or fold over upon lay.... I'm on my phone so I can't see the tail very good.... Bent tail feathers are a sign of a male.... As well as saddle feathers and pointed feathers around the neck.... Don't know if that helps. Wish I could see the picture better.

If you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at.

 

I speak in silly and smartypants....

 

A picture is always worth showing.

Cockerel. I can see pointed saddle feathers and the coloring is blotchy.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Cockerel

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Agree that's a cockerel. On a buff bird, the females will be a nice soft even shade over the entire body, where the males will have darker shading on the wings. Plus, the hackle and saddle feathers starting are male indicators.

I really want aWhite  Sebastopol that is young and nearby! Our male died two days after we bought him. I would really want a female though because the Sebbie was to be a companion for my duck, and now we think it's a drake.
