    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    It'd be helpful to see a pic from the side.[​IMG] I'm not going to guess it's gender as of now since it's still too young and we need a better angle.

    Looks like a boy to me - maybe he is upset about having a leash with dog bones on it instead of chicks. Will he walk on leash?

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I assume you mean, hen or rooster as both hens and roosters are chickens. How old is your bird in the pic? Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Thanks for joining us. If you could post another picture or two and tell us the age, that would help.

    Do you have other chickens?

    Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :) Looks like a cockerel at this point, but I'm not positive.
