    Ok everyone. I hatched this one in August 2017. I thought for sure it was a hen but today I saw it try and "mount" one of our hens it is also more aggressive than my other girls. Thoughts???

    Compare the back feathers. Do you see how different the feathers are compared to the other bird in the photo? Those are male specific saddle feathers.
