So this morning, a bird I thought was a hen attempted to "crow." Although it was a pretty pathetic attempt, it was an attempt nonetheless. The photos that I've seen show the female Easter Eggers have combs too. So ladies and gentlemen, what's the verdict?? He/She is an Easter Egger and between 8-9 weeks old and has been great so far. No aggression, very friendly, etc. and gets along great with the confirmed hen, who's an Australorp. If she turns out to be a he, what are your suggestions? My neighbors claim they wouldn't mind, but I'm not sure about one hen and one rooster of different breeds. Plus, I'm devastated that she might be a he after we've had so much fun together!! I really don't want to rehome this bird if I don't have to.
