    This gal (hopefully) is 23 weeks, has grown an impressive waddle and lately has been getting kinda aggressive toward me as I come in to check on a hurt chicken, mess with food etc. Could I be raising a roo?? Thanks

    No, it's a sexlink hen. A rooster would be mostly white with a little red in the wing areas.

    That's hen. Rounded feathers instead of saddle feathers. A 23 week old roo would have a much bigger comb and wattles.

    She should lay eggs soon!
