Is this a hen?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have 6 chickens. They are 8 months old, and 4 are laying (Maybe 5). This one is the largest and suddenly grew even more, is more assertive, and has become a lot louder. She is not one of the 4 known layers. I have no idea how to sex chickens. Help please! Haha.

I don't see any saddle feathers, so yeah, it looks like a hen to me.

I'd say it's a girl - can't see saddle feathers, legs seem slim and body shape looks girly.

Still looks like a hen to me. Mine, all from the same breeder have a good bit of variance in size. My splash hen is quite a bit larger than my blues, and they're all larger than my black.
