I posted in another section about my hens/pullets? kind of bumping chests all the time like a challenge....I thought they were female but just double checking, as one seems to be rather dominant and nasty!

Hope that pic is good enough? They are around 6 months, and one is significantly bigger than the other.....they look the same though, one has slightly differernt tail feathers but they both have the same coloured head "bits" lol what ever they are called
