In the Brooder
- Nov 21, 2011
I just got a new batch of chickens this Spring 10 are Easter Eggers and the other 24 are Cinnamon Queen (brown layers). They arrived March 11th so they are just a few days short of 8 weeks. I went to open the coop this morning and to my surprise I hear 1 of the chickens crow!!! So I guess my question is, do pullets sometimes crow? It happened twice and stopped. I can't tell which one it is as of yet and I don't see any features that make me think rooster, though I know there is a fail rate on sexing chickens. I think it may be an Easter Egger but their colors are so varied I don't have what to look for. We are not set up for roosters here yet and if 1 is a rooster I want to get him out and away from my mature hens.
