I have a chicken whose gender is really in question. I caught the cockerel (crowing now so I know it's a boy) trying to mate with it yesterday. So, I thought, ok, it's a pullet. Yeah! And yet, today, I caught that same chicken trying to mate with one of my obvious pullets! What is going on? Thoughts - is it a male or female? I am scared now that it may be male! It is an EE chicken - just an FYI. I didn't want a roo in the first place and maybe now I have two! I got all of my chickens from a man who said that they were all born in November and December. None of the females are laying yet in case that helps to age them better. They look close to full size. What age would a typical cockerel start crowing? If I have one already crowing, would the others just not crow if they were male? Or, if I only hear 1 crowing, does that mean the rest are female? I was hoping that because they are all relatively the same age and only 1 has a very large comb, waddles, and big mouth that the rest are pullets. But now I am wondering... Thanks for your help, all. I am a chicken newbie! And am probably going to really annoy my neighbor if I get any more crowing roosters!
