Sorry, but I think that your friend gave you a cockerel.  :hide

Cockerel.

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!

Thank you...I was really hoping it would be a hen, especially since my rooster seemed interested and was dancing for it. Oh well, off to search for it a home. Lol! :)

yep, cockerel. I'd be gifting that bird right back to your "friend"...why should you deal with finding it a new home?

I always say "beware of friends bearing chickens."   they generally turn out to be cockerels. Give it back and announce  "Last tag!" Send him a fruit cake  at Xmas to get even.

Okay thank you guys. smile.png In the defense of my friend though, it was truly believed to be a hen. Lol!!! I'm actually debating on possibly keeping him and getting a flock of pullets for him next spring, and building a whole new pen. I'm just not quite sure yet if I want two flocks or not yet. Or if my husband wants to build another coop and pen. But they say chicken math gets to you. Lol! tongue.png Thanks so much for helping me out yall! Yall are great.
