I have four chickens, two bantam polish, one silkie, and one who I think is a mix between a Japanese bantam and an English game bird maybe. Anyways, I used to have three polish before I got my mix chicken, but he turned out to be a Roo, and I'm not allowed to keep Roo's where I live, so I had to re-home him about a month and a half ago, maybe two months. My chickens are now about to be 18 weeks old, and one of my other silver laced polish is starting to crow loudly in the morning. And its not one little croak, it's a series of loud, full on Rooster crows. But its strange because she looks nothing like my other one that was a Roo. She isn't the dominate hen either (If she IS a hen that is). Also, shouldn't she have started crowing earlier if she actually was a Roo? (like my other one) She has no spur development yet either, and looks a lot similar to my other polish hen, who is a buff. If she is a hen, then any answers/guesses as to why she is crowing so much in the morning? Here's some Pics of the Lovely Lady (hopefully) herself! Please help me! I'm not allowed to have Roosters where I live and I certainly don't want to have to give up ANOTHER one of my babies!
