2 Buff orpington hens 'crowing'

post #1 of 7

Hi backyard chicken board. This is my 2nd year raising chickens, and I thought I wouldn't have any questions, but really I need some experienced chicken help.

The 3 month mark is right at the point I start to get nervous, because of behavioral changes.

This looks like a rooster.

Hens *can* crow if dominant, but the above picture is a Cockerel.
When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))

That's a rooster.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

This is what I suspected bc of the size of her wattles. She's also the biggest buff I've seen.

'She' started an aggressive sharp peck at the back of other buff yesterday evening.

I think it will be nice to have him and I will take lots of photos.

We shall see if I receive a fine. Then Ill give him away.

Here is another pic. I ' caught' him on the unsightly part of the fence.
