    My chicken is about 13 weeks old (recipient of the old school project). I think i heard it trying to crow one morning. But this has only happened once, and it was a pretty feable attempt. It is a little agressive, likes to peck my feet. It also thinks it is a dog. Can you tell at this point?

    If it is a rooster, what can I do with it or take it? I cant keep it, the neighbors won't approve and I am not a morning person![​IMG]

    Quote:You can try posting on Craig's List under the farm section. Is there a feed store in town where you can post his picture for adoption?
    Roos will crow whenever they feel like it, not just in the morning. [​IMG]
