Help sexing adopted chicken


Aug 20, 2019
Hi Backyard Chickens. I'm brand new to chickens so I really appreciate y'all's expertise! A very sick and injured bird wandered into my backyard, and when no one claimed her for a couple weeks, I adopted her.

Now I'm starting to think she's a he. I don't know what kind of chicken she/he is, or how old (the vet's guess would put her at 4 months now). But now I'm thinking Helen's a fella.

I'll keep Helen either way (she's a great lap chicken), but she's now healthy enough to start building a flock and, well, I'd just like to know. Here she is hanging out on the front porch. Any thoughts on breed and sex are appreciated!
