    My "hen" is beginning to look a little roosterish. Is it?

    What are the "roo-ish" signs you've been getting?

    Nope, that's a hen [​IMG] I have one that looks a lot like her. Mine has a little more lacing. I assume you think she's looking rooish bc of the bright red comb? This just means she's healthy and should be laying soon if she isn't already.

    OH thank you all soooo much. The changes I noticed were the sudden apprence of the big red comb and for some reason she's been chasing on of my other hens around and I didn't know if it was a pecking order thing or an I want to mount you thing. I so glad she's a she. I have been looking forward to the beautiful blue eggs.
