Looks to be a Production/Hatchery Rhode Island Red cockerel.
What does Production / Hatchery mean?
It means that whoever bred the bird, whether a hatchery, private breeder, etc. was not breeding towards the standard.
It just means that the birds are bred for production (egg, meat) rather than to conform to a breed "standard". Personally, I believe the production birds make better pets.
looks like hen to me to spurs no big combs or wattles or saddle feathers i think rhode island pullet
someone gave me the eggs to hatch so not sure on that one
How old is it?
I agree on Hatchery RIR but I was thinking pullet. Mine are almost 4 months and it looks like my hens.
