    I have two chickens a road island red that I inherited, her name use to be scratches but I opted to call her red or chicken the day before Easter I got a chick from the local feed store that I named eostre after a Easter lore.after much research I found out my chick was a silver grey dorking, I've handled her daily, nowshelives in back yard with red, recently she's started attacking me and I'm not sure why

    No I'm not totally sure she isn't a rooster, from what I have gathered the roosters of this 5 toed variety have totally different coloring to the females, she only attacks me if my boyfriend is outside she pays no mind to him

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Post a clear picture of your bird in the "What Breed or Gender" section of the Forum - a side view and another clearly showing her comb would be helpful.
