    it turned out to be a hen didn't it??? Looks just like mine,,,they have huge floppy combs. Mine play with my dog, follow me around and are super curious,,,with an intense stare.They crack me up. Super flighty but when they free range that keeps them safe!!

    No...unfortunately. All rooster! And yes,very flighty and almost suspicious of me. Runs away very quickly.
