    Hey, I'm new to owning chickens and was trying to find an answer to my question on a previous thread. Will roosters scratch the ground as well as hens? Or is that strictly a hen thing? I'm suspicious that one of my "hens" may be a rooster, but not sure. Anyone have an answer? Thanks!

    Strictly a chicken thing. They all do it. That's how they find food.
