    I purchased 2 chickens from a poultry farm back in April and I asked for 2 birds (I'm new at this) that would be laying soon or have already started laying. Since then one was attacked by a raccoon so I just have the other one. My question is...I was told she (?) was 3 months old in April which would make her 7 months now. Does this bird look like a 7 month old? Also does anyone know what breed? I don't see any spurs so I'm hoping it is a her.I've checked the neck feathers and they seem rounded to me and anyone else I ask.
    Thanks in advance for any help :)

    Pullet, and I doubt she's 7-months old.

    She is a lovely pullet. I doubt that she is a full 7 months however. I would say she's closer to 5 months.

    Looks like a White Rock pullet, due to the red earlobes (a leghorn would have had white ones). I don't think she is seven months old; the comb size and body shape make me think that she is closer to five months old.

    White Rock pullet. Less than 7 months, though, probably more like 4-5 months.

    I'd say Delaware or Leghorn pullet

    She's not a Delaware, as she does not have black streaking on her neck or black wing and tail feathers. She is not a Leghorn because she has red earlobes, whereas Leghorns have white ones. Just some pointers. [​IMG]
