    These were sold to me as pullets and probably are, but I just started noticing some differences in facial features and it's freaking me out a little. I don't think the neighbors would be happy to hear crowing. I'm legal to have chickens here, but I don't want to give anyone an excuse to call my little flock a nuisance.

    Maybe it's an age difference rather than a gender difference? Sorry the pics aren't more clear. If anyone needs to see anything else, let me know and I will take more pics when I let them out to play next time.

    Quote:Okay. Now I'm really confused! If this starts crowing I'm just going to hand out earplugs to the entire neighborhood!
