My local animal shelter called me needing a home for this chicken. It is hard to tell if it is a male or female. She came in yesterday and doesn't make much noise, but hasn't laid an egg either. I have eleven hens and if this chicken is a hen, be happy to add her to our flock. Is this a rooster or hen?

Best way to find out is to post the photos at "what breed or gender is this." I am not sure of the breed because there are some small colored areas and it may not be a white leghorn. Leghorns usually have heavy combs that flop over to the side. The bird may be too young for that.

Welcome to BYC - even if you get conflicting advice, crowing will let you know sooner rather than later.
