    Can anyone give me an idea of what type chicken this is? We arrived home tonight from a vacation and found him/her perched above our front door. He/she is very sweet. We have six 1 1/2 year old black austrolorps, but the new chicken wasn't in the coop with them. Ideas? Rooster?

    Whatever he is, keep him isolated away from your current flock just in case. Always quarantine! [​IMG]

    Make sure and wash hands and wear different shoes when going to your gals.
