    Hello, So my chicks are now looking like real chickens being about 13 weeks old. They look like Hens... but I caught one this morning crowing like a rooster. Is this a normal behavior for a hen? or do I have a rooster....
    I have two easter eggers. I can include a picture at request.

    Thanks!!! [​IMG]

    Edit
    This is in the breeds topic now, as suggested, With pics!!!!

    I think it's safe to say, you got a rooster. [​IMG] I'm facing the same reality this morning. I'm gonna have to watch chicken TV to identify the culprit, though.
