    Hi,

    Can you please tell me what breed and gender this one is?
    There has been no egg laying or crowing, he/she was found wandering the neighborhood where I work a couple months back and the kids named her Betty Lu.

    Betty Lu gets along with my rooster Fred and both hens? She does sleep off by her self tho?

    Thank you in advance for your input!

    Well, everyone was right! I brought home a new hen and "Benny Lou" started crowing and dancing around her, hope to have his own girl I guess LOL.
    Talk about the funniest thing I have seen so far with the chickens, I look forward to many more laughs!

    And the hen was an older tiny little bantam. I think she is an Old English splash and is so sweet and loves to be held and cuddled!

    Thanks again!
