    [​IMG]Check out this video of our chick Tractor. Is this the behavior of a hen or a rooster? Praying for a hen, roosters are not allowed in our city. Not sure how we would explain it to our 4year old that he can't keep his chick. Thanks, McChicken6

    It is trying to get something to clear its throat, maybe a piece of straw or feed. It's not trying to crow, if that's what you're thinking.

    It looks like a pullet to me.
