    Poor baby. Evil chicken chasing meany doggie tried to eat her the day she showed up at the farm!
    So, she had a bunch of feathers ripped out of her neck and a small hole in her neck too, that healed nicely and the feathers are almost all filled in.
    I am thinking she may be a he. Not sure how old she is. Bought at an auction and I have had her about 6 weeks now

    Thanks

    that's a heck of a comb for a 'girl'. the tail looks like a cockerel to me too.

    wish i could see the legs more.

    i'm guessing little man, but i'm not expert.
