    I have an easter egger I am trying to sex.

    Peanut has recently become aggressive with my other hens. She? chases them around and even pecks at me!

    Her? tail feathers recently came in about the time her demeanor changed.

    Your thoughts are appreciated. [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Yep, sickle and saddle feathers. The red over the shoulders is a male sign that would been evident early on (future reference).

    The tail's a dead giveaway. The red shoulders are too.
