    Wondering what this Chicken is? I have always thought it was a rooster but when I put it in my large pen with a bunch of other roosters and hens, the roosters keep trying to breed it. What is it a hen or a rooster?

    He's all boy! He's got such pretty coloring too. (What do you call that color -- splash??)
