    I have a mixed chickens that is about 3-4 months old. I think it is mixed with americana. Does anyone know if it could be a roo or hen? Also, what do you think its mixed with? Thanks

    Looks like a girl to me. I'd think at that age you would be seeing a bigger comb or hearing a crow(although not always)

    Hmm the first and third pics look like a hen to me. But that second pic makes me think I see possible saddle feathers.

    So I don't know.

    Almost looks like RIR/EE coloration. But I have never had RIRs.

    Very beautiful chicken, I can say with certainty! [​IMG]

    Quote:I agree. The grainy quality makes it a bit hard, though.

    Your pics are so blurry that any details are obscured. The bird looks younger than 3-4 months and the tail area looks roo-ish to me.

    With a better quality pic and closer on the tail we may be able to figure it out... [​IMG]

    Ok. Thanks for your guesses. I'm not exactly she that the age of this one. I've been keeping up with my silkies ages but not really on this guy/girl. I will try to get better pictures tomorrow.
