    My rooster and hen mated, whom were both mixed to begin with, and resulted in this lovely chicken. I'm not sure whether this is a rooster or hen though! So hard for me to tell. It's kind of important to me right now as his father died today! Not sure why. But anyway, this chicken was hatched in November to has gold sexlink, father was an EE mix. Sorry the pictures are not the best but this one is sure scared of me!

    I would guess pullet as well. Lots of feathers and the comb is pale and small so if it were a roo I would think the comb would be bigger and redder.

    Pretty pullet! It will be interesting to see if she lays green eggs.
