I own four chickens (3 Polish and one Silke, all bantams) from which I got at our local feed store when they were a day old. They were supposed to come sexed, so I wasn't too worried about getting a roo, although it was always in the back of my mind that I may get one. Right now, my chickens are 8 weeks old, and I just came back from vacation, but my neighbors who were watching them said that they herd one of them trying to crow. They said it was my biggest polish (Irene). I have only been home for a couple of days, but I haven't herd her make any noise, so I thought that maybe she got scarred or one of the other chicks jumped on her and caught her by surprise, since she is a polish and they are a more timid breed . But my mother just called me a half an hour ago, and said that she was making more strange noises, like she was trying to crow. She isn't the dominant chicken, and is always very calm and kind, but she does look a little bit different from my other two polish. Her crest isn't in "afro" shape really, which i know isn't a very good thing to base her rooster possibility off of, but her crest feathers are more or less growing everywhere if that makes sense. Also, she is already geting red where her waddles are. Does this mean she is or could strongly be a roo??? Could my Irene be an Ian??? PLEASE HELP ME!
