Hello, My kids talked me into getting chickens right around easter this year. I've had backyard chickens growing up, and thought it would be good experience for them (they are 10&11). We got 3 chicks (an Americauna, A Dominique,& a Barred Rock) From the start the Barred Rock and the Dominique have been absolutely sweet, while the Americauna has always been super skittish (even after being handled daily) Anyhow, I read somewhere that roosters have pointed feathers and became concerned that my Americauna (Reese) was a rooster. It would be heartbreaking to find out that he is a rooster since they are not allowed in our area. He doesn't make much noise, I think the 2 girls are louder than him at times. Do they start crowing at a certain age? Any help would be much appreciated.
