I have a chicken that appears to have sickle feathers. It was never a very nice chicken. I flipped it over and compared the spur bumps to my other chickens and there wasn’t a difference. I don’t know what kind of cross it is, and it is most likely a 3rd or 4th generation cross. The hackle also looks the same.

To me, it looks like a very beautiful pullet! Do you know how old it is? I have a six month old favaucana who has similar feather shapes to your chicken, had me thinking she was a cockreal for a while lol!

How old? Looks like a pullet.
It’s about 3-4 months.
Looks female.
I'm gonna guess some Sumatra influence as well as game.
I can't decide. The comb is pretty red, so if it is 12 weeks or under, I'd say probably cockerel. If it is older than that, probably pullet. It's a pretty bird in either case. Probably some Easter egger in the mix, and maybe some game fowl.
Looks like an Easter Egger pullet.

Read this. Please don’t continue guessing the breed, it is a cross of probably 5-6 different types of chicken.

Compared to any siblings it might have, are the feet/legs much bigger than the others?
