    Hello all,

    I just brought back my 1st place RIR hen (I hope) from the fair. She never has shown signs of a rooster before but now she is pecking the laying hens neck. This is her to the right. Her head is a little bigger then the other RIR. Hope shes a she.

    Congrats on 1st place!

    That is a hen. Pecking is not a sign of gender but pecking order. She is probably higher and pecks that other one who is lower.
