So I am watching my newborns (2-4 days old) I have noticed that one of them might be acting like a rooster??? Is it too early to tell by personality? While all the other chicks (7) are laying down, startled, or scared, there is one that is fearless. It will stand up like it is protecting the others and will remain alert for a while while the others cower or fall asleep. It will eventually fall asleep standing, which is so precious! Until its head falls and it topples over. It is also a little bigger than the others. I am in a neighborhood, so of course it would be best if i didn't get a rooster.

What do you think.... Is it too early to say based on personality alone?
Welcome to BYC! It's really too soon to know. But if you do happen to have one in your bunch, roosters do not only crow in the morning. They crow in the morning, during the day, at night, and in the middle of the night. If you live in a subdivision with close neighbors, a rooster will most definitely be a disturbance. They are far noisier than hens.
