    I just picked this fellow up from a man who lives about an hour away from me. As I got home, he called and expressed his concern that he may have accidentally given me a rooster instead of a hen.
    I can't really tell -- young rooster or average hen? It's got a big fluffy butt like a hen, but those wattles do look kind of long.

    Definitely a hen or a laying pullet.
