    Looks like a Golden Seabrite to me. Look in my profile and compare to what you see.

    Looks like a hatchery quality gold laced Wyandotte - possibly a cockerel but really not certain on gender.

    Honestly, I can't tell much from that picture other than it's a chicken. The photo needs to be a lot more crisp.
    As for gender, knowing the age can really help, as there are different things to look for at different ages.

    thank you I will look that up. What does hatchery quality mean? it did come from McMurray hatchery. we got the stock your coop assortment so we are learning along the way what they are

    I'll try to get a better pic. there are two of them that are this type. They were brown stripe in checks and at 3 months old are black with brown feathers. They're both really pretty but I can't seem to find anything in the catalog that looks like them

    I think it's a dark cornish, look how thick the legs are! Yes @moondance0cx , a clearer pic would be great

    The reason I'm not saying Cornish or Wyandotte is because those legs don't seem yellow at all. We really do need a better quality photo.
