    Any help with the breed/sex of this one. Animal control has it and contacted us about it. I was thinking male, but fairly new at trying to sex a chicken. Thanks[​IMG]

    I'd say some type of game hen, but profile shot would help so we can see build/shape better. But if she was found a-wandering, and with that coloring, it's a pretty good guess she's mostly game. Likely to be decent layer, good forager and good momma.

    Looks like a game breed mix. Definitely a female.
