this beautiful creature came to our house 2 weeks ago and has made a nice home in our garage. It follows my husband around after he saved him from the next door neighbor's dog. The dog ripped out its tail feathers. They were a beautiful greenish color. They are starting to grow back now. He is the funiest little creature. A HUGE personality. Our problem is not kowing if he/she is a hen or rooster. My bets are rooster- he is so beautiful. He has waht I now know as saddle feathers- I think, a greenish-blue sheen on feathers, and tail feathers that curl up- remember many are missing in this pic from dog attack. He does not have the red thing under his chin though. I also had him "cock a doodle dooing" for the first time the other day in response to talking to him. I had no I idea I could speak chicken. Any ideas on gender and/or breed. We have become super attached.
