    Hello! When I first posted her younger pic, I was told this is a hen, just double-checking :) Likes to hang out with the roos and not her original flock-mates, but she may be getting mature, too. Thanks!!!

    I would say hen, but how old is she?

    21 Weeks. She doesn't hang with the other five girls as much. She picks on the head roo from the other group of chicks (who are about five weeks younger). Glad she's a hen!

    Her comb is getting red too, so i would say she is going to lay soon
