    Hello.
    I'm still questioning my other Chicken's breed and gender. We thought it was a Rooster because it always stood tall and proud and fought with the other two, also has thicker legs and what I call a "beard".
    And we still can't figure out the breed. We named him Cinnamon. Guesses?

    I would say rooster because of the tail and I think I see saddle feathers but its hard to tell. But he seems too light and orangey color for a RIR. I'm just basing this on my own roo, I am in no way an expert!

    Rooster, but I'd need better pictures of the neck and the tail to be sure. And yes, most likely a hatchery rhode island red.

    I agree. Looks like a rooster. Maybe hatchery Rhode Island Red or Production Red.

    Yes, definitely a rooster and I'm thinking from the lighter color that he's a Production Red.[​IMG]

    Okay. Thanks for all of your help :) I'll send more pictures I can find because he left along with Harmony, so I can't take new pictures.
