    Hey, I'm new here so I'm not sure if I've put this in the right place but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what breed this is. 4 of my neighbours chickens got out and I can never catch him around to ask what kind it is but I think she's (I think she's a she lol) absolutely beautiful!

    Looks like a cross bred to me. Likely a game cross, might even have some Japanese in him with the upright tail and shorter legs.

    Welcome to BYC! I agree with the others and that is definitely a rooster. No doubt at all.

    Thank you everyone for the replies and the welcome! I may have to call on your expertise again as I have a mix of chickens that I bought from someone who knows about as much as me (lol) and i have 3 young ones who aren't quite 3 months old yet and she claimed that only 1 is a rooster but I'm not sure. I'll post pictures when I venture out to the coop and I'm sure all you awesome people can help me :)

    It looks like the one on the left is a roo, and the other ones are pullets. 99.9% sure on that.

    I say all the ones you posted are roos. The tan one has pointed feathers coming in around the neck and quite a bright red comb already. The shoulders look pretty dark too, perhaps a full body side shot would help.
