    I raised this chicken since it was a baby and I can't seem to figure out if it's male/female and I have no idea what breed this is. It's about 4 months old[​IMG]

    He has hackle feathers and saddle feathers coming in that are rooster shaped instead of hen shaped.

    Well if any of y'all live in Austin your welcome to take him. Can't have a rooster crowing in my neighborhood. I don't think the neighbors would like that to much
