    Is this a boy or girl? I was told its a blue orpington bantam, and I thought it was the Rooster that's been crowing, but found another one crowing instead. I don't want to get rid of it if it's not a male. Anyone know?

    The picture that is up is of a black and white bird that looks like a silver laced wyandotte? If that is the one you mean, need pictures from the side and back. You might want to post on the What Breed And Gender Is This Forum also for some ideas. From the head, it looks like a rooster (or hen that should be laying) but can't see the back colors and feathers.

    Your bird is not a Blue Orpington, maybe a Wyandotte Cockerel. I've attached a pictures of Orpingtons & Wyandottes...

    How old is the bird?

    Profile shot of the whole body would also help.
