    Hey you guys,

    Just added a new member to the family. I have 3 RIR's and 1 B.O. and got this one today from someone that couldnt keep it. Im new at the chicken thing and myself would just say " hey is this one of those standard eventually food on the table birds?" lol. But would like it if someone could actually give me a name and maybe even tell me if you think it's a hen or rooster.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    It looks like a White Plymouth Rock. Do you know how old it is?

    I have no idea what breed. Hopefully someone with more experience can do better than I can.

    Ya know, the people that had it said a month. But I find it hard to believe that it's that young?

    Quote:Yeah, it does look older than that... If it's less than three months old then it's 100% rooster with that big red comb and wattles.
