Do hens have spurs?
I would imagine Rosie does

Every time that we have hunted with them, we have had hens and toms flog and peck them. A tom pecked one on the head so hard that it punched a hole in the decoy head! Anyway, we sat in a pop up blind trying to get one with a bow. 2 hens came up to the decoys and one of the hens started strutting around the decoys and even fanned a couple of times. She was in a fighting mood and pecked at the DSD a while then fanned a while. I hadn't seen a strutting hen before.
