    I am a newbie. He/she is an 8 weeks old EE that has always towered over the other chicks in terms of size and likes to show who is boss. I could swear I heard crowing this morning at 5:00 am! Is my pullet a cockerel?

    His/her beard is wet from the rain:

    He is so pretty and tame with humans as well unfortunately roosters are illegal in my town and we have really close neighbors. Any way to muffle a rooster? Ugh...
