We recently got her from a friend and are unsure of the breed. 2) does our Rhode Island Red look like it could be a rooster? All chickens were hatched on the same day (now 13 weeks) and she seems much bigger and has dark feathers in tail area. Thanks for any input!

    I think the RIR is a cockeral. Not sure what that white bird is but it looks like a hen

    x2 RIR is a cockerel. White is a pullet. Not sure on breed either, could be a white Legbar but I’m fairly certain they cost a lot of money and likely wouldn’t be given away to others, so probably a mix imo. Where did your friend get her from?

    Thanks for the input! My friend got the white chicken as a fertilized egg and hatched it. She kept getting attacked by her other chickens so she gave it to us

    I’d assume she’s mixed then but others may be able to identify her better
