    Hi, I'm new to backyard chickens but love reading the info! I have 10 chickens and I suspect one of them is a rooster. It does not crow during the day. It's a little loud in the morning but that's it. I have only had chickens for a few months so I am totally new to this.[​IMG]

    That's a boy. Look at the saddle feathers and the rich dark red coming through with them

    The rooster said with venomous sternness while brandishing his razor sharp spurs!
