    I bought a day old chick to put under my broody hen. She was supposed to be a crested cream legbar and therfore definitely a she!

    I realised quite quickly she wasn't a legbar but now at 20 weeks old am non the wiser as to the breed or sex!

    I think it looks like a brown leghorn, it did have a curlier tail and the colourarion makes me think cockral but the comb and wattles are still very small.

    No eggs or crowing currently. We did have some quiet crowing for 2 mornings when the chick was about 10 weeks old and I put him and mum in the main coop with the others but I have had hens crow in the past and as it didn't continue I am still not sure.

    Sorry for poor quality pics, he's camera shy and also now doesn't have a tail due to someone pulling it out!

    Any suggestions on breed and sex would be appreciated

    Without pictures, our answers are merely guesses--shots in the dark. Pictures would help.
