    Please, help...you have all been so wonderful. A few days ago I posted my EE might be a roo, i shared pix on here and it was confirmed. He went to his new home this morning. I was baking cookies with my 3 yo an hour ago when ANOTHER one of my 5 remaining hens (??) started crowing. We SAW our EE crow, and now we saw this one crowing. I want to cry! Chicken math is going against me. Is thisa buff orpington roo?? He is 18-19 wks. The first 3 pixin my album:

    I am no expert but I am going to say yes, he is a roo [​IMG] hens can crow if there is no roo to do it for them, but I don't think that is this case.....Hopefully someone will have a different opinion?

    (and by the way, your baby is beautiful [​IMG] )
