    Can anyone tell me what this is...
    Breed and if it's a hen or rooster?!
    It doesn't crow like my other roosters, but it has been seen fighting with another one once. I have no idea as these are my first chickens!
    Thanks :)[​IMG]

    Must be a camera angle and how it was looking, there's nothing wrong with its eye.

    Think the last image caught him mid blink. So it appeared something was going on with his eye. He's perfectly fine :)

    He must've blinked his inner eyelid as you were taking the photo. He's definitely a rooster with those long, curving tail feathers. If he's low in the pecking order he won't crow. He sure is beautiful.

    black Sumatra. He looks to be pretty young yet, but the crowing will come.
