In your 2nd and 3rd photo, near your hand almost looks like saddle feathers, but the photos aren't super clear. How old?
I’m a super chicken newbie and this chicken came in what was supposed to be a group of all hens but it didn’t look like a hen to me! Lol I can’t have another rooster in my flock at this time so I had to be sure before I put them in. The lady didn’t give me any age or breed info or anything :/

Hi all, we are having a bit of trouble/denial with this little 'lady'. Is she a she or a he?! She came to us because someone's ex-partner got her kids a chick and a duckling but the kids got bored. We would have had the duck but it died - they have been together since being brought home as babies in Feb and we got the 'hen' in Sept/Oct.

She was very hard to introduce to our others because she wouldn't let fights finish, even when the other chicken had had enough. She also has a full beak where the others don't. She has now become quite aggressive to us and she crows.

While this might all sound a bit obvious we're wondering if her odd start to life has made her become a female that behaves like a male. She has no noticeable spurs, just little nubs and her tail feathers aren't that long.

That’s a cockerel.

@Rach1802 , that's a cockerel, and his attitude will most likely continue to deteriorate. He sounds like a prime candidate for coq au vin.

To the OP - that's a cockerel. Comb type will help with breed identification.
