    I was sold a supposedly Aussie Hen, but she is sooooo aggressive for 8 weeks old, that I thought MAYBE she was a "he"? The breeder didn't seem to be very knowledgeable...

    Anyway, is there anything that is a giveaway for a Hen vs Roo in an Aussie?

    How old do you guess she is? Knowing full well it's a guess. I was told she was 8 weeks old.

    thank you all!

    I guess I need to handle her more and introduce her more slowly to the flock :)
