Another newbie gender question... We think we might have a rooster! Our Barred Rock "hen" recently starting crowing in the morning and evening, and it's beginning to sound an awful lot like a cockadoodle doo. Our chickens are all about 4 months old, and our Barred Rock has always been the dominant and aggressive one. S/he also grew some facial decorations pretty early, and they are quite red and large, particularly compared with the other chickens (though they are all different breeds). For some reason, though, I never suspected that she might be a he until all of the noise started! Help! Can you help us confirm that this one is a male? Much appreciated!
