    Hello gang,
    I need helping identifying gender on this polish. It is around 4 month old and started to pluck lower feathers from other hens. Don't know if it's aggression thing or rooster thing[​IMG]

    Do you think she's pulling feathers out of aggression then?

    No she seems to pluck them from around the legs or thighs of the other hens, sometimes around food And sometimes not. But we are seeing feathers all over the place now in the last 2 weeks
