New two chickens and I don't know if this is male or female?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I had a few chickens that someone dumped near my house and I've been caring for them for the past few months. Two are definitely roosters and I thought this was a hen, but now I'm having my doubts. Any help would be appreciated. It does not crow, but had never laid eggs either. Also if any one knows what breed of chicken is that would be great too.

It's a rooster! I'm afraid to take a guess at the breed, since white ones are a little difficult for me. ☺

x2 and :welcome, could you get better pictures? Is it just me or does it have a reddish tint? Could be a Red sex-link cockerel.

Well.... I guess no eggs. Nicest chicken in the world. Comes when you call it, will sit on your arm. You can pick it up. Was positive it was a chicken and not a rooster. Thanks for all the input .

Oh, also a "chicken" can be a female or a male (its like calling you a human) and a "hen" (calling a human an women) is the female name for a chicken and "rooster" (calling a human a man) is the male name for a chicken.
