This is Ethel. She is 12 weeks old. I thought she was a pullet, BUT she crows! And the darker feathers appearing on her back are glossy. Some of the feathers in her tail are iridescent. She is definitely in charge of our little flock. We have no adult roosters, and she is the oldest and largest of our flock, so is she a hen filling the role, or am I deluding myself? Is she really a he???
