Hen or Rooster

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi I am completely new at having chickens.

 

I am very confused as I have googled and found this chicken to have both characteristics of a hen and a rooster.

 

My questions is this black chicken a hen or a rooster??

 

Here is a bit of information:

Brought them all at 3-5 days old from a breeder that sells vent sexed to be hens

2 have been laying eggs for over a month

Black one developed comb and wattle before the other 2 and is quite large

Black one crows

Now almost 6 months old

 

 

Day I brought them

 

White one at about 1 month old

 

Red one at about 1 month old

 

Black one at about 1 month old

 

Now aged almost 6 months

Black one rooster.  Red one hen.  White one...?  Where'd the white one go?

Black one is a pullet, close to laying (if not doing so already).

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!

The white one was in the nest laying an egg at the time so 100% sure she is a hen.

While hens do crow on very very rare occasions it's normally much older hens not young ones so the fact it's crowing is a bit of a giveaway you have a rooster. Is it also jumping on the other chickens and trying to mate?
