A friend noticed that a stray chicken had been wandering the neighborhood for about a week, and then one morning the poor thing wandered into his yard where his dog found it. Needless to say he intervened, and I offered to adopt her. I think this is a hen, and she is a beautiful girl, but I know nothing about her: Could she be a he? Looks like a frizzle but that doesn't narrow down the breed does it? She's got 5 toes and feathered legs, and is MUCH smaller than my full grown orpingtons, and wyandotts. Is she young or just small? I did notice what looks like new feather growth on her head (lotsa quills), but I don't know if this is because she is still developing (not seeing a lot of fuzz), or if it's regrowth from her trials and tribulations. Here's a pic, maybe some of you more seasoned chicken keepers can give me a clue?
