    Can someone tell me what kind of chicken this is? Is it a female or male? How old does it look? It's mostly white, but has some brownish wing feathers.
    We decided to adopt athis chicken from our neighbor who bought it as an Easter present for her son. It came from TSC & my neighbor says it's about 3-4 weeks old. We are getting 6 started pullets the first part of next month so we have the coop & run ready to go. It seems healthy (although I'm no chicken expert)[​IMG]

    I'm no expert but it looks like a cockerel (young rooster) Red sex link perhaps. Good luck.

    Looks pretty big for month old chick. Cornish cross pullet.

    I'm thinking Red Sex-link cockerel, or White Rock mix.

    If it's a rooster we won't be able to keep it since we live in a neighborhood :(
