    Hi all,
    We are the proud owner of an abandoned chicken. I am trying to find out what breed and sex.
    I love this bird!
    We live in Michigan and have a large back yard. This is our first chicken and so far so good!
    We did not have a coop for the first night. I do NOT recomend the bathroom as a temp. coop! LOL!
    Nice to meet you all!

    Glad you took in the rescue. Very good of you.

    Imp- afraid to mention breed or gender, cause I'm always wrong.

    Welcome, welcome! Great of you to rescue that pretty bird. [​IMG]

    I believe that's an easter egger (mixed breed) rooster. He's quite handsome!

    Yep, I am told (from this group) He is an EE cockrel. I have found him a home north of here.
    He gets to live with some emus! LOL!
    We are hopefully getting a 10+ week old Black Coper Maran X Aurucana.
    We will really miss this guy! We are not allowed roosters here.
