how can you tell (other than laying eggs) the sex in a hen from the roos? I was given a chicken the other day and I was told it was a rooster (she said she SAW it crowing) anyway I think it is a hen. it looks exactly like my other hen (she is a OEGH seabright mix) jsut a slightly different color I will try to get a pic and post it of them together Anyway I dont know if there is a trick to figuring out if this new one is a boy... he (if it is a boy) is terrified of the girl. he was in solitary confinement at my friends house for killing 3 silkie pullets. I am hoping it is a boy but I guess if its a girl more eggs for me!!!!
