    Our hen went broody and adopted some eggs from someone in our community. They didn't know what their chickens were and they hatched silver. I've never had a chicken this color before. So beautiful, but what is it? The fluff was a snowy gray combo. As they have feathered out they are this gorgeous silvery color. These pics are at 2 1/2 weeks. I also want to know if this one could be a roo? His/her comb is taller than the others and tail feathers are about 1" longer already. [​IMG]

    Are those all the same chicken? The first two make it look like a male but then the last one looks like a female. Maybe it's just from the light. So I'm going to say mixed breed cockerel

    Yes, these are all pictures of the same chicken. It runs out ahead of mom in the morning coming out of the coop and then likes to perch and watch everything. The others stick pretty close to mom, but not this one. It makes me wonder if it's just personality or if it's showing gender already.

    I'm leaning towards cockerel, also.
