    My chicken is 1 month and 13 days old. She/he is a mixed breed. I don't know the breeds. If anyone can tell me the breeds I would appreciate it [​IMG]

    Hen or Rooster?

    I'm not sure by any means but I would venture to say it's a pullet.

    I sure hope you guys are right. We're not allowed to have more than 1 rooster where I live so I would prefer not to have any at all [​IMG]

    Where did you get her/him (her)? And how many others do you own?

    Quote:Oh, I guess I should have mentioned that. I hatched her/him in my incubator. The eggs I got were from a friend but his chooks are a mixture of breeds. The chicken was the only one out of 11 eggs to hatch. All the rest didn't even start forming [​IMG]. So I don't have any to compare with [​IMG]

    I'm saying pullet but those legs and feet are pretty big.

    Looks like a good mutt.

    I am going to say cockeral, that comb and wattles are way too red at 6 weeks old to be a pullet. [​IMG]
