    Hello, anyone have an idea on the sex of my young chicken?

    She(he) is becoming very aggressive with the other flock.

    I will post a 2nd photo once they settle down some

    Thanks for the help

    It looks like a cockerel. The stance it has, the red comb, and the saddle feathering near its tail tell me this. Do you know what breed it is?......it's gorgeous!

    Hmmm...to me it looks like a pullet. Most barred birds that are male have more white in the bars. Is it a mix? It has an odd look to its head/comb...

    Hmm...I didn't think of the barring...it does have less white.

    could be mixed, the seller told me she was a lorp (austrolorp) i have 3 that are all the same color. But the 2 in question has a different comb and they are both causing trouble amongst each other. Going to try and get better pics.

    I'm wondering if it's mixed with EE or silkie or something, because it kind of looks like it has muffs/beard????

    Well, it could be silkie. The farmer also gave me a polish/silkie mix. So, it indeed likely.
