    Happy Veterans Day! I was hoping someone can help us identify the breed and gender of this bird. It is much bigger than our Rhode Island Red's and is approximately 6 months old. We acquired this bird along with 5 others from a craigslist ad. The seller was unsure of the breed and gender as am I. There are no spurs that I can see and we have not heard it crow if that helps, lol. Any suggestions would be welcomed! Here are some pics....

    Thank you all. I'm not sure I can keep a rooster around however (neighbors are cool but I don't want to create an issue). We will have to see how he turns out I guess. He is very skittish and the older Red's I have seem to have no problem showing him who's in charge ; )

    He's a Splash Laced Red Wyandotte rooster, in my opinion. The blue just looks a little too light for him to be a Blue Laced Red. He's a very pretty boy!
