    I got a chicken and I wondered if anyone knew what I might have, or what sex it is. sorry I have the one picture hope it gives you enough. I also just seen it and the clouded look in the eye is a reflection of a window behind.[​IMG]

    I'd say a good call, aran. Would like to see a whole body pic, though.

    I have roosters that look like that, the lady at the store I bought the chicks from called them Anconas. I'll post pictures of them later tomorrow for you to compare with. [​IMG]

    Completely missed the white earlobes! Gee, Cyn, change the glasses! [​IMG] Yep, he does look like an Ancona rather than Speckled Sussex.

    [​IMG] Guess what it is a hen!!!! I had her by her self and she layed a big brown egg. We got it from my nieghbor and she kept telling me it was a hen i didnt believe her, so I just put her by her self and sure enough she layed a egg.

    She was bleeding a little she was freaked out about the new place and kept running into the wires trying to make a escape. It was only a little srcatch on her waddle, nothing that bad.
