Is this Wyandotte a hen or a rooster?

    This Wyandotte was sold to me as a hen, but she is a little feisty and I am concerned about her combs. Any help out there?

    I know, huh! She seems to be gold and silver. Is she not a Wyandotte at all?

    Definitely a hen. A very pretty one at that. Don't worry about the feisty attitude. Some hens are just like that. She may calm down after she gets relaxed and has her place in the flock.

    She's a lovely hen, imo. Really nice color!
