    started "bock bock BCGOCK!" ing today.... for about 45 minutes, walking around the coop by him/herself while all of the girls were in the coop. we have a flock of 5, with this one, 2 RIRs, a barred rock and a silver laced wyandotte.

    this one has been growing quite a bit, looks to be starting to get saddle feathers and has been quite noisy. I ordered a pullet run in may from chickensforbackyards.com and this one turned 11 weeks old today. Is there any... I mean ANY chance this one isnt a rooster? my son will be very upset if Luna has to go to a different farm, unfortunately our town doesnt allow roosters.

    With a comb that red, at that age, it's most definitely a boy.
