    6-7 week old black Orpington. I still can't tell if we have a hen or Roo. Is it still to soon? It is not aggressive but a little spastic. Any tips will help. Thank you IMG_1637.JPG IMG_1639.JPG IMG_1646.JPG IMG_1662.JPG

    Thank you. I was hoping I was wrong. I was supposed to get all hens but things happen. Still a beauty.
