My chicken is..

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My chicken is acting weird.. He/she is rebel , 6months old. Not crowing or squating.. It's a crested bantam polish.. It has traits of both male and female so I haven't been able to successfully sex. OK so the chicken acts like its on pills and nodding out. Then it hears a noise and perks right up but it will do this quite a bit and just stand there and zone out. Then act normal. Still eating drinking and pecking/digging .. Is this normal behavior?? For a male or female. Here is a picture of rebel

thinking roo the poof is way too floppy and the wattles are big for a pullet and too red unless it is laying, I have a nutty hen she will sit down in the flowers and then dart out and run back she must think I can't see her or something, it is her normal sometimes you just get a crazy chicken you just have to love them and laugh at their antics.

Looks like a pullet to me. She is close to laying.

Can you post a photo that shows the back feathering better?

Agree we need a profile pic, but I"m leaning toward pullet.
