    I am pretty sure this is a hen, but have no clue on what breed this chicken may be. Any ideas?
    Its 3 weeks old. I can get more pics if necessary.

    I have the same one... huge feet and all. He's one of my sweetest ones too. [​IMG] Maybe he won't crow... [​IMG]

    Mainly because the girls have had big tail feathers since like the first week, and these guys are still fuzzy butts at 3 weeks old!
    Look at my BYC page for pix of my girl Queenie, and compare to these fuzzy guys

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=27985 scroll down for some good pix of the tail feathers way back at day 12!
