    We are new to chickens so need some help here.. A friend of mine gave of us some of her to get started, she thought she had given us 7hens and 1 roo... so one of the ones we all thought was a hen has been very noisey and chasing and pecking all the others in the run including the rooster (he runs scared from her) so im wondering is this bird a hen or a roo??? i have found this bird going in and out sitting on the nest but nothing yet?so is this just part of figuring out the pecking order or a roo.. I think its a fairly young bird also? not even sure of the breed
