    I have a chicken that's 3 months old and is a Hamburg I and not a new person with chickens I have a flock of 5 that's 6 years old and a flock of 9 that's 4 months old then 3 small chickens that are 3 months old and I have never kept this type of breed so im only new to the breed I show my chickens and use them for eggs so I wasn't sure what gender my chicken is because the chicken I named it caramel so any way caramel has some green in his black and brown coloring and I know a black Australorp (I have this breed) has green kind of coloring in it but its in females and males but roosters have that too and Hamburg's have a big tail but I don't know because roosters have big tails also this chicken I have also has green in its tail which roosters have and a big tail which I know the breed is but im still deciding whether its a male or female so I need some opinions

    Quote:So far looks like a hen. Roosters have broad looong tails. They aren't green like others but its long and showy. They also have a pretty large comb. Not that of a leghorn or andalusian but definatly noticable.

    Ok cool. But as you see from australorps, green can occur in hens such as the golden spangled hamburg and some other black breeds.

    yes I know that but I know naturally it will show in black australorps I know that because I have kept them longer and have more knowlge but I have never kept a hamburg before and I don't know anything so that's why im asking
