    Was told this is a hen when we got her. It is suppose to be around 7 months old. Yet to lay an egg. Idk what kind of chicken it is, we got her w/ a laced easter egger and told they were sisters, they dont even look the same.[​IMG]

    Hard to see the tail well but that bit of white at the base is a good indication of roo. I have some ee hens and roos. The roos are laced and both have a slight tuft just like their dad.

    I will try and get a better pic. This chicken is a bit aggressive twoards the others, stands in a shallow pan/dish if food is in it to eat. My least favorite. I had a white leg horn rooster i just rehomed, it crowed all the time, this one never even tried till 2 days after the leg horn was gone, and it is a month older.

    Its name is cupcake! Lol
    My EE hen that is supposs to be the same age still has a very yellow comb and yellow legs. She is built like a hen, her body shape is similiar to my Rock and RIR, not quite as large, she lets me hold her like a baby. But she has yet to lay. The pic is my Rock Big Mama, she lays as does my RIR and my 2 OEGB. I have a very small black hen who follows me and my husband around everywhere, I think she is part silky and a mystery I think hen, who hatched in June and is yellow white and kinda fluffy w/ random black spots.[​IMG]
