    Welcome to BYC!
    We can help you sort out the gender of your bird if you take and post some photos - it would be best to start that thread in the "What Breed/Gender" forum here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this Photos should be taken in natural lighting and show the bird in a natural, standing position from the side so we can see the whole bird (with nothing like hands, etc, blocking parts of the bird holding it)
