So I have tried to determine which of my chickens are ladies. So many of them square off, but then I read that is common for hens too. It says hens get submissive and lay down when u pet them, but my favorite one does this, and I am almost certain he's a rooster. Only one has started to crow. I am curious because they run my yard all day and I am sure I will need to start looking for eggs like it's easter. They have a house and they go there at night but how are they going to decide to lay in the nests?
