    I have what I think is a Rhode Island Red rooster...he was given to me by a friend's father who has a lot of chickens, so I feel he was correct with telling me he is a roo. Anyways, he is much larger than my hens, but no large comb (not sure what it's called...new to chickens), and absolutely no crowing...although he has been doing this weird honking noise for the past three days...almost sounds like a mix b/t a duck and a cough. I am beginning to think he is either a hen or he is getting sick, or both...please give advice...thank you in advance, and have a blessed day!
