    Hi everybody, we have a hen in question... Believed to be a silver pencilled cochin bantam about 5 months old now but we can't tell is she is definitely a hen or roo. We hatched her and two others from eggs, the other 2 are 100% roosters and in a separate pen.

    She has recently started to get pecky towards us and managed to draw blood this morning.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thank you!
