    I recently rescued a pair of friends. A collie with a chicken. They are best friends & want to hang out together all the time. my question is, what breed or cross breed is the chicken & is it a roo or hen? I have never seen one like it. It is very friendly & aprox. 4 months old. (Not sure because it came from a dog rescue that knows nothing about chickens, only that they didn't want to separate them because of their close friendship.) It is a smaller sized chicken. [​IMG]

    Looks like a young Easter Egger cockerel to me. Cool pattern.

    Thanks guys! Yes, I am keeping them both, I think. If my other 2 roos will not pick on "Feathers". The Collie, "Sophie", goes out to the chicken pen several time a day to talk to "Feathers". It's the cutest darn thing! :)
