So I'm not sure if my hen is a rooster or just rotten? She's starting to do weird things. 1. She WILL NOT let you touch her. She snaps her wings at me if I get close enough to touch her (it hurts). 2. When the girls are all out in the yard and the squirrel is in the tress she will do a clucking noise as if she is warning the other girls. They actually all come running towards her as if she's telling them to come close for safety. 3. And now on top of those things she chases my smaller dog. Yes, she chases him (it's pretty funny). As soon as my two dogs come out the door she will look for my Yorkie-poo and come running towards him to chase him. The poor guy is afraid of her. My Mal ti-tzu just stands there. She will peck at him but he doesn't flinch. She never hurts them she just likes to chase him. All I can think of is he's the same color as her just about and almost the same size so she feels threatened? The puppies were taught not to pick on the girls since they were chicks. So my dogs know not to go after my girls. She use to be the docile one. She never gets into any of the fights with the other girls when they pick at each other. She's a Barred Plymouth Rock and hasn't start laying yet. She's 5 months old. Actually only one of my girls has started laying only this week. She hasn't started doing the squatting thing yet so I'm not sure what to think? She hasn't crowed or anything that sounds like crowing. She clucks like a girl. All of a sudden she's the protector? Here she is as a baby chick and now. What say you all?
