Hello,
I am trying to determine what kind of chickens I have. I purchased them from a neighbor who raises them for meat, I want them as pets and eggs. One is 20 weeks old and is the colorful one, I call her Eagle, although she looks like a rooster? She has no waddler or comb though, I am hoping she is a hen!

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  If you post photos of her at  "what breed or gender is this."  you will probably get a lot of opinions.

Hello and welcome-byc.gif
We are glad you joined us!

Your colorful one is very pretty, but it is a definite rooster do to the fact of the tail feathers. What breed is it? It might not have a comb yet because of its breed. Certain breeds that turn out to be roosters will not get there combs until they are older in age.
