    This is "Felisha" and she is a golden nugget who is 2 months old. She is very aggressive with the others and runs up to them and puffs out her chest. Can you tell by the pics if she is a Roo or not? I'll add more pics in the comments.

    Thank you so much![​IMG]

    golden nuggets are I believe a sex link, which would mean that's a pullet.

    If they're not a sex linked cross, I still say pullet. Nothing says cockerel at this age. Some pullets are just very assertive [​IMG]

    The behavior you describe is normal behavior for establishing pecking order.

    She looks more like a buff Orpington, not a sex link. But still a girl.
