    Hello, I am Chris an am new to raising chickens. I strongly suspect one of my six hens is a roo. After researching on backyard chicken I think this might be my rooster. I would appreciate any help in confirming this, what do you think? [​IMG]

    This morning I heard what sounded like a loud goose. Not your standard rooster call, but it was much louder than I have heard my birds before. I am worried on of my girls is a he.
