welsummer Hen or Roo?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Here is a pic of a Welsummer I have that acts a little like a Rooster. It looks like a Hen to me but is larger than my other welsummer and will even fight my dog, but does not fight my Polish Rooster. It doesn't crow, but I'm just not sure if its a Hen or Roo? Any thoughts, please advise?

if she aggravates your dog too much,  she may be a dead hen soon.  Even gentle dogs have their limits.

Definitely female. Males have a completely different color pattern.

Hen for sure. She may be more dominant than your other hens which may be why she is more aggressive.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
