What kind of chicken is this?

Is this a rooster or hen?
post #2 of 7
Both are hens, the first is either an Easter eggers or a blue Americana, the second is a barred rock.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Roosters are feathered differently than hens, roosters have saddle feather and hackle feathers, hens do not.
