We are new to chickens and have four. This one started making crowing noises. They are approximately 5 months old. This one doesn't hang out with the other three as much, and seems a bit smaller. I'd be grateful for ideas on the other breeds. I can post more pictures, of course, but maybe it would be better in another thread? Brand new to BYC, too :-)

Welcome to BYC - the red bird is a pullet - perhaps a red leghorn.  The third picture shows her and a gold laced Wyandotte.  Second icture is her and perhaps a buff orpington (leg color is off) and perhaps an Easter egger.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.

x2 she might of been singing her egg song?

Thanks for the breed ID! Buff Orpington sounds right -- I know Ace Hardware (where we got them) sometimes have those. Fun little chickens so far! 

 

I don't know about the egg song. First time chicken owner. I had read that roosters start to make some weird noises before they start crowing but today the Wyandotte is also clucking, so it seems like the red doesn't stand out so much anymore.
