    ok so the buff orpington is gone............ crowed non stop and we don't have very nice neighbours.
    BUT this morning we woke up to another crow. But it sounded like a crow in training not a fully fledged rooster crow. So either the EE is a roo after all OR one of the new guys is learning his trade. We bought them as day old chicks, supposed to be leghorn cross but can someone help with both sex and breed please. We need to isolate the males and figure out who is going to get us into trouble.
    Any ideas on how to figure out the crower too would be appreciated. thanks

    All Pullets, except #5 thats a rooster, and maybe.... #1 that one looks pretty fishy. And the breed might be White Rock i'm not possitive.

    thanks all.
    So everyone else is a pullet huh or should I be worried about any others?
    Why has #5 (known as little peep) got no tail?
