    We have a new flock and I'm afraid one of them is a rooster. They are about 4 months old & this one (an Ameraucana) has started crowing. It has no spurs, but I've read that sometimes it takes a year for the spurs to show.

    I was afraid of that. Now I've got to find someone to take him off my hands.

    Thanks
