What breed is this?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was recently given this chicken and was told it was a rooster.  I was hoping to find out what kind it is and confirm it is a rooster.  I put it with some hens and the hens have abused this poor guy horribly.  I haven't heard it cluck or crow in the week that I have had it.  Any ideas or suggestions?

He is an EE rooster with perhaps a strong Araucana influence.  He's just a kid and the old biddies are keeping him in his place.  It does not look as if they are physically harming him.  He will eventually find his 'mojo'.

Thanks guys.  I am sure he will come into his own with time.

Easter Egger cockerel, and I agree with sourland that he is just finding his place in the flock and will eventually "rule the roost." :o)

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
