I can't believe I have a rooster after 5 years.

    So last year we added to our flock and after a few months my neighbor started hearing a rooster crow only in the early morning, not loud or during any other time. I thought he was crazy because none of the new ones looked or acted like a roster. Well today he recorded the sound, still not sure which one it was. So I decied to go a look at the chickens (hubby takes care of them, I hardly ever go in the coop) and one of my sons favorite was by me and I picked it up just to talk and examine it. Well it has spurs on it and I think that is the rooster. IT IS 5 YEARS OLD how the heck did we have him for this long and did not know?

    Could you post some pictures? Hens can have spurs too, and in the absence of a rooster sometimes a hen will take on the role, even attempting to crow.
