    I would like to know the breed and gender thanks. I picked it up at an auction, Im suspecting its a roo no eggs yet, but it doesn't crow. I got him with two other fizzles, I have another just like it.

    The pictures are a bit small and blurry but it looks girlish to me. Do you know how old it is? It may not yet be laying because 1) it's not old enough or 2) it's stressed from the move.

    The pictures aren't very clear, but I'm thinking it's a hen, possibly a game type. Can you get a clearer picture with the bird standing?

    I have no idea how old they are because I got them at auction, the two fizzles I got are laying, I caught this one chest bumping the other day. Do hens do that too? Im going to head out and see if I can get a clearer pic, its a fast runner! lol

    Yeah, my hens still run at each other and "chest bump" it's a chicken thing, you wouldn't understand. [​IMG]

    Looks like a brown red old english hen maybe? There are so many colors with the OE, so I may be wrong on the color, but the breed looks OE

    Looks henish to me, from the looks of the feathers they looks silkie'ish.. my guess if you got them with frizzles your probably looking at their first attmept at a sizzle?
