and yes, I'm SURE they are both hens. hi , we have a 6 hen flock, including a young barred rock egg layer and a 3 yr old welsummer hen. sometimes if I'm letting them out the barred rock will squat when the welsummer comes near. this also can happen when i put the welsummer down next to her. she welsummer has been very mean to her in the past and even jumped on her back when this happened and started tearing at her comb! why?
