    I am pretty sure that this is a hen. Until she started attacking my EE she got along with everyone. She still does very well with us and is very sweet.

    10 weeks old here.

    What do you think?

    Hen. Her attacking the EE maybe just be some peckign order thing going on.

    Thanks for the replies, I appreciate it.

    I was pretty sure but just needed some reassurance. Someone had asked in my thread about the fight whether or not this could be a young roo "practicing". It makes sense that it could have been, this bird was on top of the back of my EE pinning her to the ground and ripping feathers out and pecking it bloody. ( Not going to get a lot of girlfriends that way though [​IMG] )
