Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by tomofhb, Nov 15, 2013.
I've been looking in all of my books and I can't figure out what breed or gender this one is.
Well, where'd it come from? How old is it?
I'm thinking of adopting it from my local animal shelter. I'm not sure on the age. I'm going to go look at, hopefully, her this weekend.
Odds are, then, it's some sort of mixed breed. The comb is very 'pink' for a young pullet, so I'd guess roo...it's going to be a pretty bird, whatever it is!
She (I think) closely resembles Old English game chickens. They come in many different colors, I used to have alot of them. That is my guess, lol
Its an Easter Egger.
It is most likely a cockeral due to the chestnut feathers coming in on his shoulders and the pea comb is already quite developed and pink.
Easter egger boy
Easter Egger cockerel.
He's an Easter Egger male.
From the photo, it appears to be an americauna I have one that looks almost identical. There are a few ways to determine sex. The most reliable way is to wait, it will become obvious pretty soon. You can also look at the saddle feathers (just forward of the tail), if the tip of the feathers are rounded it is most likely a pullet, if they are pointed its most likely a rooster. Another telling sign is to look for waddles, they usually develop early in males, but this is not always the case. That's a good looking bird. Those green legs are awesome.
