I have chickens for the first time.... we have 15 hens. We got a free exotic chicken from the hatchery as an extra. The problem is you couldn't specify if you wanted it to be a pullet/cockrell. So I have this feather legged chicken that we are going to give away to a friend if it is a rooster. Don't want a rooster yet and I figure if we decide we want more chickens why not just buy more from the hatchery instead of having a rooster? So I don't think there is a way for me to know what it is for sure but if there is please tell me! The feather legged's watttles and comb is bigger and darker colored than the others except for my one of my barred rocks (in the last picture) who prob. Has the biggest wattles and comb. They are about 9 weeks old. So do you think it is a rooster or hen, or is there any way to tell? Also, if you have a (big) dog and chickens do they get along?
NOTE: I know the chickens look too cooped up but that is just there temporary coop and it looks dark only because rain was coming so we wanted to cover the coop with a tarp.
