    Hello BYC, I have another chicken for you!

    This chicken is a mixed breed, a Dominique mixed with Breed X. I'm not sure what hen laid it, but it seems to be a red chicken, as it has some interesting feathering going on. The chicken was hatched in early May, and I would love to see what it would look like full grown. However, I've already got a load of roosters. If anyone has any idea what gender this chicken is, I would be eternally grateful. Also, if anyone could guess what type of hen Breed X would be, you input would be much appreciated. Here's some photos!

    Hen, the comb is small and usually that can help you determine.

    That much comb and not even 3 months? That's a cockerel, sorry.

    so the rooster is the Dominique? What are the choices for hens? Can you post a pic of the father?

    x3 cockerel. Like donrae said, that much comb and wattles at less than 3 months sure sign of cockerel.
