    Greetings! First post! Any idea on the Gender or Age of this bird? He/She is currently is under quarantine until such a time I can introduce it to my three girls. I am also unclear if it is a Plymouth Rock. I am not too familiar with the breed, and I see no tail!

    With the color of those legs it may be a Black sex link cockerel. But I'm not positive. Looks fully feathered and by size 7 to 9 weeks?

    I'd say a 4-month old pullet. Either a Barred Rock with wrong color legs or a Cuckoo Marans.

    Can't see the comb real well but I would say Dominique pullet. Mine has those same legs.

    Thanks for the input. It seems my little chicken is still somewhat questionable. I think it is a bit small for the four month mark as well. I have a couple other 4 month olds and they are twice the size. Hopefully it is a pullet.

    I say 12 week old barred rock/dominique pullet... I can't see the comb well enough, straight comb= Barred rock... rose comb= Dominique Pullet

    I agree, we need a better shot of the comb. I am leaning towards Dominique pullet.
