    Hello everyone! I wondered if someone could please help me identify this chicken's breed and whether it is a female/male. This was an Easter chick in 2009. The comb and wattles just started showing in the last few months. Compared to the other chicks we had, this chicken grew super fast! It is very docile and great around the children. Besides which, we think it's gorgeous. Thank you for your help in identifying this chicken. We are completely new to chickens and have learned alot about caring for them this past year though not anything about identifying them! [​IMG] There have been no eggs at all so I'm thinking "she" might be a "he"?


    Well, as a new user I can't seem to figure out how to post any pics or even urls pointing towards the pics. Soooo, the best I could figure out to see the pics would be to go to Photobucket and do a search for [email protected] You'll see three pics there. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but couldn't figure out how to get past the spam bots to post pics. Thank you soooooo very much for your help!

    I am not familiar with photobucket, so I was still playing!! Go to your photo and click on share.. When that pops up, click on the "get link code" tab.. Then just scroll down and click on image for bulletin boards and forums.. Just copy or click on the full size image code, then come back and paste that code into your message... Hope this helps.. But here is your chicken!!

    Thanks for posting the pic. I had uploaded via BYC and through Photobucket. However, BYC told me that since I was a new member, I couldn't have any url links. The photos I uploaded counted as URLs apparently also! Thank you so much for posting. Caring for the chickens has been part of our childrens 4H and I'm trying to get this one identified before they turn in their project record books tomorrow!

    You are very welcome. I am unaware of it not letting you upload that.. But it should let you copy and paste the link into a message as I did. You don't have to upload anything here, doing it the way I described.

    I have a girl who is similar, with the exception that her earlobes are white. She is a white leghorn x Rhode island white.

    She's a White Plymouth Rock hen. [​IMG]

    She'll start laying within a couple weeks!

    Edited to add: I'm guessing White Plymouth Rock because they are known for being very large and fast growing and very docile. They are also a common Easter chick breed. She could be a Rhode Island White, but this is a much rarer breed, and also not near as large and less docile. White Plymouth Rocks are great brown egg layers! [​IMG]
