    Hoping so badly its a hen. Its my only barred rock. And oh my, she(or he) is a bossy one. Wont let some of the later added chicks to the food until she and the other "original" chicks are all finished. Chases the roos and hens around sometimes too! Think if its a she, gonna name her Miss Priss. If its a roo, well, probably be in the freezer soon, lol! I think shes 10 weeks old.
