    I am new to chickens but with as red as its face is & those HUGE legs/feet. I am going to guess she isnt a she, but a ROO.

    Yeah, big foot is most certainly a rooster.

    I told DH, I am a roo magnet, he let me pick the one I wanted out of the pullet bin and this morning I was staring at 'her' thinking I did it again I pulled a roo out of the batch! but I wanted to make sure. the lady didn't know which hen was her mama and she doesn't know what hens she has, she just has a yard full of mixed chickens. At least he will be tasty on the table when he is full grown, well the sheriff who lived by us and still has his house there told me that having a rooster is no problem what so ever, we live out in the county, maybe I should go door to door and see if a crowing roo would bother them.

    I want to call him Mr. Bigfoot [​IMG] or Daddy Long Legs!

    Thank you guys for your quick responses! You are the best!

    egg_tastic: it is so funny watching him around the yard, he struts his stuff and sticks his legs out so proudly, I have never seen such long legs!

    alabamachick: that is perfect, maybe I should call him SKI-ter, sometimes it looks like he is on stilts

    chickened: wish I knew the hen, I looked at a picture of a red broiler and I remember some the other pullets looked like the pictures I viewed, so he could be cross between an RIR and red broiler
