Hello! My family is brand new to the whole backyard chicken thing. We bought three week-old chicks that were supposedly female, but we gave away our Araucana rooster (formerly Polly) yesterday. Haha...we thought they were all female until he started crowing in the AM. This morning, my daughter came running in alarmed, hollering, "Mom! Cotton is making the same noise Polly was!!" Cotton is our Light Brahma. I went outside to listen, and sure enough, she/he was making a loud crowing noise. It wasn't the same cock-a-doodle-doo noise that the Araucana was making, so I'm hoping she was just being chatty...so please tell me she's a she... *gulp* Thanks in advance for any and all help!
