    I'm starting to question whether or not one of my rhode island reds is a rooster. It's louder than the others, and makes somewhat of a honking sound. It is also less 'plump' than the other RIR, and has smaller looking feathers. Any ideas?

    Are they about 18-20 weeks? They both look like pullets, I don't see any saddle feathers...

    That's good news because I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to have a rooster where I live =) every time I go out I ask them where my eggs are hahaha
