    We got these two "ladies" a month ago and they are suppose to be about 4 months old. This past week one of them started crowing in the morning. Is it possible we have a "crowing" hen? Or does one of them look like a roo? [​IMG]

    They both look like Roos to me. A lot of comb for ladies and they're red. My girls have small combs and yellow or light pink comb at that age.

    Both look like cockerels to me with that much comb at 4 mos.

    Noooo, that's upsetting. We can't have roosters.
