    Hi everyone, this is my first post!

    Do you think this chicken is a Hen or a Rooster?

    I was given it when it was only several weeks old and told it was female. It's about 5-6 months old now.


    Thanks for your help.

    That's a rooster, it has patchy feathering common for roosters and rooster tail feathers.
