    I am sorry. I don't know . I think it has something to do with the site. Coz i can't even flag or report anythin anymore and I don't see the editor when i start a thread. Anyways, please can you help me with identifying this bird.


    I would also appreciate if you can report this thing to the moderator about me not able to flag, report and not being able to see the editor.

    It looks like a maturnig pullet to me depending upon age...ie if that is about a 4 month old bird, or so, then it is a hen. If that is a 10 week old bird, then it could be a male depending upon the breed...I am assuming Australorp or mix of that (since the legs are too yellow)?

    However I am not seeing any saddle feathers, or curled sickle feathers in the tail (harder to see the tail clearly)...so I am going to say maturing pullet coming onto point of lay.

    Thanks for your input. The age is six to seven months. I posted the thread again since i was having some issue with the BYC site. i think its a mix. We have a breed called Kuroiler in India. Its a mix between rhode red island and broiler.

    hey nitin upload some clear pic in which we see its tail and whole body clear.its a bit confusion.......how is its voice.....to identify put a hen with that unknown gender one.if he or she shows interest in a hen like other rooster do.because as you are saying its 6 month old it would have been matured enough.....

    I wish I could see the tail better but it looks like a girl. if the tail gets longer it's a boy
