    I was recently given this chicken and was told it was a rooster. I was hoping to find out what kind it is and confirm it is a rooster. I put it with some hens and the hens have abused this poor guy horribly. I haven't heard it cluck or crow in the week that I have had it. Any ideas or suggestions?

    He is an EE rooster with perhaps a strong Araucana influence. He's just a kid and the old biddies are keeping him in his place. It does not look as if they are physically harming him. He will eventually find his 'mojo'.

    Thanks guys. I am sure he will come into his own with time.

    He looks like my EE's, but I only have girls.

    Easter Egger cockerel, and I agree with sourland that he is just finding his place in the flock and will eventually "rule the roost." :eek:)
