    I have just started my flock and my Rhode Island red pullet is making me wonder. She is a lot more aggressive than everyone else and has thicker legs and is a lot bigger. I have a mixed flock so I don't have another Rhode Island reds to compare to. Is there any chance she really is a she? She is just over 4 weeks old.

    I had some false hope since he was supposed to be the best layer of the bunch. Everything points to rooster though up to him being more aggressive than any of the others. I just hope there are no other roos in the bunch.
