My wife insists that she heard one of my 12 week old peepers do a loud "cock-a-doodle-dooooo" yesterday. I bought 6 peepers in March, and they were all supposed to be pullets. I got looking at them after that, and one of the two easter eggers has a red comb that is larger than the others, has alot of red on the wings (which the other easter egger does not have), and that particular bird's feathers are just more flashy than the other's. And I know that in the bird kingdom, the male is always flashier and prettier than the females. So I think that that one easter egger might, maybe, be the bird that let out the loud "cock-a-doodle-dooooo" -- that is, a roo. If that is the case, I can't let him live in the hen house, can I? I can leave him in the chicken tractor when I move the younger girls in with the older hens at age 17 weeks or so. But will he be lonely without anybody else living with him? Should I get him another roo to keep him company?
