    but now I'm not sure. It sure looked like one when it was a chick. Any thoughts on what breed it is? And is it a rooster? I was hoping for a hen I've looked at lots of pictures on the internet, but none look like this.

    Thanks!

    It has RIR in it, but it doesn't look too much like an RIR. Maybe a mix?

    I agree! Very pretty bird! It does look like a RIR/EE/comet kinda mix! [​IMG] When people would ask my Mom what nationalty she was she would say, 25% german, 25% norwegion and 50% hienz 57! You should name her Heinz! Or 57! [​IMG]

    This is my first time posting on the message board, and I can't believe how fast you all respond! Many thanks! Is the general consensus that it's a pullet? or a cockerel? (S)he is so pretty and docile - I really hope it's a girl!
