    Ok so yesterday I pictured a picture of my silkie and everyone said they thought she was a pullet. I have 2 booted bantie roo's and today my one roo started to try and "fight" with my silkie she would try and " kick" back but then she'd go and rub on the side of my roo...does this mean she is a he or is this a common thing for pullets to do too. My EE and Light Brahma like to chase each other and hop around the yard. These chickens were purchased and raised together.[​IMG]

    I do know that roos do the chasing thing and hopping at each other even when young, I'm hoping it has something to do with the pecking order in pullets, otherwise I'm in trouble:idunno:he
