    This little chicken was supposed to be a hen. Not so much, I think. Please let me know what you think. I'm seeing pointed feathers on his hackles and saddle. Not sure of breed either and was told he/she was from a RIR hen and EE roo. Any ideas?

    Actually I think that is a hen. It looks like she has no spurs or male feathering and her comb isnt that big so I would go with saying shes a girl!

    How old is it? I think it's a roo. I see some shiny feathering on its back.

    It does look like a RIR x EE. [​IMG]

    Definite cockerel. Not a hen.

    I agree with Illia. The hackle and saddle feathers indicate a handsome cockerel in the making.
