i have a hen, i know she's a hen, but she has pointed neck feathers like a roo whenever shes angry at the other chickens, is this normal? or some sort of a mutation.

Some breeds have pointier and shinier hackle feathers in the hens when compared to some other breeds.

Quote:Do you mean the actual shape of the feathers, or do you mean that when she's angry she fluffs them out like a roo? (which is perfectly normal, I think all hens do it, yours may just be grumpier than the others so you SEE it more
