I have a small flock of 8 week old chickens. Every night the same chicken calls the others back to the coop and leads the group up the ladder to bed, it is very vocal at this time of day. In general is it a male or female that is in charge of bedtime routine? It's the one chick we are still up in the air about sex on. Thanks!

Post a pic of suspect bird? Gender should be pretty apparent at 8 weeks for most breeds.
Usually a male will do that but not uncommon for female either, especially if there is no male present.
