    I currently have 5 hens in my backyard chicken flock. However a few weeks ago I had this random chicken show up. I think it's planning on staying (if it's a hen)

    What do you think it is?
    My guess is a leghorn [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    The tail feathers and overall coloration makes me think cockerel.

    Black Breasted Red Modern Game bantam (although the legs look at little short, they will probably get longer) cockerel
