    It's definitely a pullet because the roosters are white with red splashed wings.

    All flocks have pecking order, if you just have hens, the dominate hen will be on top. If you have a rooster he will be on top of the order. But I do have one hen who's not afraid to put him in his place if he get a little to aggressive with her.

    Agreed; more commonly known as Red Sex Links. It's definitely a female as male Red Sex Links are primarily white. :eek:)
