This beautiful little “pullet” was crammed in a small cage at my local feed store with several other chickens. I had to rescue her. I’m not sure about her breed or even positive it is a pullet, although they charged me for a hen.

Upon arriving home a young hen began having a rival jumping dance with her. We put her in the chicken run with our 3 year old rooster. He just walked calmly beside her.

All ideas and help appreciated!

This is a cockerel. It has pointed saddle feathers. Not sure about the breed though. It looks like some type of mixed breed.

Beautiful bird. She is a he, sadly. I can't say the breed for sure though.
