    If your talking about this black chicken, it's not a new hampshire red!....The one next to it is possibly. Could be a mix. The green and blue that you see is when the light hits thier feathers...I think it's very pretty, all black chickens look like that. How old? This could is very big and red...I'm guessing roo.

    its a hen because if it was a rooster at four months it would have a larger comb and waddles and probably be crowing by now
