    That is a rooster, and a mix breed.

    That's not a hen. That is a rooster. The huge comb and the obvious saddle feathers gave that away. And from what I can tell that looks like an Easter Egger. But I'm not positive on the breed.

    Shame on the seller. No way that is a female. I hate it when people take advantage of inexperienced people. He's a mixed breed, possibly some Easter Egger in him.

    The red coming in on the shoulders is also a clue.

    I have 3 buffs. And one of them makes a duck like noise. It has only happened 2 times. Doesn't sound like a roo but I'm new to the chicken game
    Thanks [​IMG]
