Somebody found this chicken under their porch and they had no idea what to do with him,so we took him because we have chickens. He about the size of a bantom chicken and hasn't grown at all. He makes a weird sound almost like a caw.

Does anybody know what breed he is and is it a boy or a girl?

how much and when does it craw ( as you put it ). He may be a young roo! have you checked its vent area? ( also known as its butt ). From the looks it appears if it was a girl then she would lay eggs by now. BTW it is BEAUTIFULL! Idk what breed it is but it looks like a mix

Well he might be a pullet but we've had him for a month and their is no noticeable growth. He caws all the time, I thought at first it was because he was thirsty but I see him drinking all the time. He's in a cage with food and water.

I'd say it's a young Production Red pullet. She probably has parasites and her growth has been stunted from it. Try worming her and see if that improves her weight.

I think it's a cockerel based on leg thickness and color, but I agree a better profile shot of the bird standing, including legs and tail, would help.
