    Hen or rooster? She's fairly aggressive, she bites and is pretty rough on the others.

    Awesome! I'm pretty new at raising my own chickens. The one in the photo has taken on male behaviors mounting, bullying, even tried to crow the other morning. Haven't heard anything since.

    If you could post pics again ina week or two we can give a for sure. Sometimes they switch genders! Not really though. Its feathered like a hen but its comb is a little boyish for the age. How old are they? They look around 8-10 weeks old?

    Im thinking around 15-17 weeks. Ive had them for about 5 weeks now. So much fun to watch. Its comb def looks different compared to the others that are the same breed.
