    almost 2 month old EE Nacho. Is the chick a roo or a hen? The chick has been seen challenging other chickens and mounted one. Not sure if it is a roo or a dominant hen.

    I'm in the same boat. Although this little one hasn't shown any dominance issues.. I just can't have another Rooster with the one I already have.. So Which is it, Hen or Roo.. lol
