    Here is a pic of a Welsummer I have that acts a little like a Rooster. It looks like a Hen to me but is larger than my other welsummer and will even fight my dog, but does not fight my Polish Rooster. It doesn't crow, but I'm just not sure if its a Hen or Roo? Any thoughts, please advise?

    That is a hen. Both genders can be aggressive

    if she aggravates your dog too much, she may be a dead hen soon. Even gentle dogs have their limits.

    Definitely female. Males have a completely different color pattern.

    Hen for sure. She may be more dominant than your other hens which may be why she is more aggressive.
