    I was told this was a hen, but it's making funny noises and I've never owned chickens before.
    Any thoughts? [​IMG]

    I have a plymouth white rock and shes a lot bigger. Her tail isnt pointy like yours, rather flatter and bushier. And her cone and wattles arent as big. Are you sure that's a white rock and not a rhode island white?

    She is about 12-13 weeks. We got her March 4th and she was already a few days to a week old. The only thing I am sure about is the fact that the guy at the store said it was a white rock. These are the first chickens I've ever owned!

    What color eggs will you get? I got a White Rock today along with a Welsummer. Close as I can tell they are about 3-4 weeks old.

    I think you have a cockerel, could you get a better side view picture?
