    Please tell me my SLW is a hen...! She is very aggressive with my BO. i see no pointy feathers on hackle or saddle, no giant red comb (pink, but hennish, i think). are they simply discussing pecking order, or is this definite roo behavior?

    I don't have a camera.[​IMG]

    Females do the chest bumping thing, too.

    Post some pics. Someone here can probably help with gender id. Pullets will chest butt as well.
