I have two chickens I got as peeps back in July, a production (I think) and a plym rock. The Plym, Godzilla, has always been bolder, friendlier, generally more outgoing. Now that I'm going away for a weekend, for the first time they will be left alone. They've been free-range up until now and they sleep in the house. I bought a small coop online and build a run, so they can be on their own for a few days. I put them in the run today during the day so they can get used to it. When I came home, I found an egg! The first one, but I think they have probably been laying them around the yard for weeks. The problem is, only one. And it was small. My guess is that it was the production, Mothera. But that means the jury is still out on Godzilla. How do I know if it's a boy or girl? (He) doesn't crow, but he makes a long croaking sound like a long winded frog. Just one low tone that goes on for five or six seconds (buuuuuuuuk), not loud but kind of annoying if he should be down for the night but isn't sleepy yet. (He) does this when he wants treats or if I try to make him wear one of those chicken diapers. But he doesn't crow. So is that a sign of a male? And if I have a male and a female, can I eat that egg or is there going to be a baby chicken in it? Sorry, but these are my first chickens, and I really never planned to have them, I just kind of got them by accident.
