    We can not figure out what the chicken is. It does not engage in any of the rooster like behavior and is very shy. It does have a comb but it's not bright colored, it actually looks almost like it is faded but has always looked like that. What is your guess on breed and gender?

    Best pics I could get.

    I have asked before but am hoping to get a clearer idea as she gets bigger. She is around 2 months old

    The color looks like it may be a red jungle fowl hen, but I am no expert on chicken breeds. [​IMG]

    If she has red earlobes, she's a welsummer. White earlobes, she's a brown leghorn.

    I will have to try to see her ears if she will let me get close enough. When we feed them all treats she won't come up for a treat.
