Baby chick is picking on older hen - Page 2

Thanks everyone for the responses. I think you may be right, I think he's a cock. He's the only chick that even has his waddled, the comb is also more developed then the others. It'll be fun to watch them grow and see if we're right!! I think now that the chickens are all familiar with each other I'm just going to back off and let it work itself out. Thanks again!!

Yeah, I love playing "guess what sex it is". It's a fun game.
