Hi, just wondered if anyone could tell me what type of hen this is? (Or possibly a cockerel) xxx
Hi RobinThat's an awful pic. It would be best if you could get a good side shot of the bird. Poor thing does look rough and you might be the only reason it has any chance at all.
Not all roosters are aggressive so it's not a great well to tell. And if he's feeling less than spunky it could cool his jets too.
If you can, get a better pic. And congratulations on you for rescuing him.
Thanks so much, I just popped out and took more pics. He or she has been with me about 10days and has survived an awful ordeal. He or she has been on pain relief but is starting to come off it now and still a bit nervous but no aggression. They will let me pick them up. Some feathers are missing at the back so it's hard to tell. Dont worry about the bandage on the leg, he or she had a broken leg which is in a splint due to come off on Sunday. Xxx
