    Someone gave me this chicken saying it was a rooster. But it looks pretty henish to me. But on the other hand, it has HUGE spurs. I know some hens grow spurs, but I've never seen spurs like this on a hen. And I also have no idea what breed it is. It is by far the smallest chicken I have ever seen. He's about 1/4 the size of our tiny silkie. Any ideas?

    Old English Game or Game cross. Interesting Color.

    He's a boy. He has some nice saddle feathers coming in.

    OEGB. How old is he/she? I don't see any sickles, and the comb size is the right size for a hen (if fully mature). The only indicator that it's a cockerel is the saddle feathers.

    He is 2 years old according to the guy I got him from. And I would agree with him according to the giant spurs.

    Those are some industrial strength(and length) spurs. Make him (?) the flock protector
