    Was sold this as a hen guaranteed. Apparently lays huge eggs. Have not had an egg from her as yet. However the last few days she has started mounting 2 of the 7 other hens in the flock. Is this a rooster or a dominant hen?

    Cockerel, and not a pure barred Rock either.

    It looks like a cuckoo maron.

    Have returned him to where I purchased from and swapped for goods to the value of as they only had very young roosters and a couple of possible hens. I decided that it wasn't worth the risk of another rooster. And they were far too young for me.
