    [@peter vargas] Not necessarily. All chickens don’t develop large combs and wattles; and they sometimes have to be trimmed back due to disease.

    If the chicken is truly upside down, the two wattles (the two red folds of skin under the chicken’s beak) would be hanging down.

    [@Kevin] I agree, it looks like a hen. Any rooster I’ve ever seen has a large comb, which is not to say there aren’t breeds with smaller combs.

    Looks more like a hen to me. Notice the distinct lack of a large comb on top. However, with that being said, there is a huge amount of variety between different breeds, so I cannot be certain without seeing a whole-body picture. Who taught that bird how to pose?
