    I am new to raising chickens and my first flock is just now 5 months old. I have 3 Black Australorps. All were factory sexed, but and one is larger than the others and is mounting the other hens and biting them on the head. Could I have a rooster? Photos of the bird are below; I'd really appreciate your feedback.
    Thanks

    It looks like a hen to me. The behavior is very roosterish though [​IMG] do you have any roosters? If you don't then I think this girl is just trying to be the dominant hen by acting like a rooster.
