    We got this one out of a mix of straight runs. I have no idea what he/she is, but due to this one's attitude I have a feeling it's a 'he'. Any ideas???

    A polish?
    Something in the "top hat" category.
    I havent had much experience with top hats... even though I do have some sultan chicks that have extra toes... but they are white... so that can't be a sultan.

    I'd say polish. Or maybe a brabanter of some sort.


    Good luck!

    Yep, it's most deffinately a Mottled Houdan. Houdans are almost exactly like Polish except for the fact they have an extra toe.

    I haven't firgured out how to post a NEW post, so I keep just replying.
    I am brand new here.

    I got 3 chickens, first time EVER having chickens!!
    I am excited. Only one is laying; I suspect the second is really a young rooster, and the third is a different type and much younger, and the other 2 have rejected it, so I had to separate it from the other 2.

    I would like to attach a picture but I can't, for the life of me, figure out how!!!
    HELP!!!

    One important and novice question: do you HAVE to have a rooster for a hen to lay eggs?? I don't really want them fertilized; just eggs.

    Meeerylou, if you are on a topic, all you can do is post a reply. You have to be on the index to post a new topic [​IMG]
