    We were waiting for the school bus this morning when we heard the incriminating sound from the coop. A real, honest-to-goodness crow! It's gotta be this guy, a 13 week- old Buff Orp. No eggs from him, I guess:


    I hadn't planned on having a rooster, but accidents happen. Since they're locked up at night, I'm pretty confident that the neighbors won't be bothered by him. At least, no where near as bothered as I was by their late-night electric guitar practicing!!! [​IMG]

    Thanks, ukchickengirl, he thinks he is handsome too!

    Yep, I held out some hope that he might actually be a hen, but he has waddles like slices of salami and is 50% bigger than everyone else, so I can't imagine *someone else* is actually crowing. Oh well, maybe I'll get some homegrown chicks next year....
