I just purchased this Blue Hen of Delaware thinking it was a laying hen, but after doing research online, it looks like it might be a rooster. Any thoughts?
It's about a year old.
The white spot under the eye and the high comb made me wonder.
It's a pullet. Males have patchier coloring with dark feathers on their necks, shoulders, back, and tail feathers. Plus the back feathers on this bird are broad and rounded, indicating female.
Thank you so much everyone. I was worried! I wondered about the lack of dark feathers on the back.
Thank you. I'm new to this breed, so I appreciate the info.
