    I got Brea when she was a baby chick. it's been almost a year now. She just started growing a crest and crowing like a roo. Also she has begun to have a very aggressive temper against me something thats very new and not cool. What happened? is she a confused gender hen or is she a full roo?

    Please Help. The pics are from two hours ago.

    Thanks.

    Looks like a mixed breed or Easter Egger rooster.

    Why the tiny cage?
