    Hello all,

    We have a total of 8 chickens and have figured out all but 1 of them. Can someone please identify this chicken and whether it's a pullet or not? It started out as a brown and black striped chick, but seems to have lost all of that coloring. It's now around 11 weeks old and has the biggest feet of all our chickens. Here it is as a chick:

    Now here it is as an 11 week old (approx):

    Thank you for helping in advance :)

    You have a cockerel, and he looks like a Rhode Island Red. Where did you get him?


    ETA: missed part of the sentence when I entered. Oops!

    Got him at Tractor Supply in Harrisonburg, VA. He was the only brown chick they had in a straight run bin. Thank you for answering :).
