    As of now, her name is "Manny" (the manly chicken).
    We don't know if she lays since the chickens are free range and have stopped laying in the coop.
    No crowing, fighting, or mounting the hens... but I was wondering what you all thought, she looks awfully masculine:

    Here is Lunchbox, the confirmed hen for comparison:

    I thought so!
    I just can't help but laugh because she is the absolute least feminine female animal I have ever seen! [​IMG]

    She's a girl. [​IMG]


    You should see show quality Brahmas - Very "manly" and serious. And absolutely huge.

    Haha, thanks! She is freaking GIANT compared to the Rhoadies and Orpingtons.

    She's awful pretty.. If I wasn't so concerned about the leg feathers getting so dirty I'd get Brahmas in a heartbeat!
