    I am not sure what breed this is and also if it is a rooster or not I am a first time chicken owner and am learning a lot... I have two Barred Rocks and this (silver wynadot) any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance... her name is Roxie and hopefully we wont have to change it to Rocky. :)

    thanks for your input....i looked at a bunch of images on-line and think you may be right... the thing is it is very docile and well behaved and has yet to start cock-a-doodle-dooing.... are there roosters that are well behaved and dont peck or act aggressive?
