I'm new here and while my partner and I have been researching chickens for a while we had decided to wait until next year. On Friday, a friend called after finding a chicken running around in a park in Chicago. After discussing all the reasons why not to pick it up we did anyway. We think, but are not sure, that it is a rooster. Looks sort of like an Orpington. We have no idea how old it is. No eggs or crowing yet. We decided to go ahead and build a coop and keep it, we've grown attached. But we would like to know. If it's a hen we could add more hens and get some eggs. If not, we probably have to be careful as we don't want to breed chicks. We can have about 4 eventually. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
