Ok, we have one Bantam chick that is now acting very rooster-like! We are so new to this though that we have no idea if she is just more aggressive than the others, or if SHE truly is a HE. We had two bantams but unfortunately one did not make it so we have nothing to compare "her" to. She is now about 10 weeks but has not really made any attempt at crowing that we know of. They are pretty much free-range in our yard (with a lovely coop to sleep in at night) so we have spent a lot of time with them all. In the last week though, she has become very aggressive. She puffs up her feathers and scratches at the ground as if she's going to charge you! And she DOES charge! Pecking at my feet while I was opening up their little door to the coop this morning.
So, for all you chicken people that know much more about these lovely little girls than I, is my sweet little banty a rooster or a hen?
I'd love any input!
