I've had a small flock for one year now. We got them at about 1 week of age. 5 hens and one feisty rooster (aggressive enough to be a good protector of his girls but not too much of a nuisance to us). It may seem silly after a whole year of raising them and observing the interactions with each other (which has been fascinating) but I can't seem to determine who the top hen is. Any tips on how to determine? I'm just curious as I'm am a first time chicken owner and love watching them and learning all I can. Thanks!
