I am new to the chicken/rooster thing and am so glad to have found this web site. Have already learned something tonight. Last month I had 3 new pets added to the family. A rooster named Barney and 2 hens named Wilma and Betty. Barney refuses to crow now and not sure why but at least Wilma and Betty will cluck at me. I am hoping to learn all there is about keeping them healthy and happy.
