I have 2 older hens (2 years old) and 2 7 week old chicks. I've been trying to integrate them, and the 7 week olds have been in a smaller cage inside the run for about 2 weeks now. They are sleeping in the coop at night and then I shoo them out at dawn into the run in their cage. I was going to start letting them out of the cage with hiding places this week or next. However, this morning when I shooed them out of the coop into the run, one of them made a funny noise. Uh oh, could this be a rooster crowing? How would I tell? Can they do that at 7 weeks? The one that did it is the dominant one of the two chicks. The person I bought it from said it is a white-colored easter-egger. It looks very similar to my other chick, which is a buff orpington...only it's a little smaller in size and of course it has white feathers. Please help me figure this out! I really am hoping it's not a rooster because I would have to find a home for it and I would also be stuck introducing a single chick to the older hens. Thank you!!!
