    Hello everyone!

    I have a new batch of chicks set up in my house. I've raised baby chicks last year and all were hens. This year we ordered Leann's "Adopt Me" Bargain from Meyer Hatchery. So we have a straight run mix. Every once and awhile, I'll hear a baby chick sounding like a songbird! Quick question. Does this loud chick mean it's a rooster? :confused: I'm only assuming since I've never raised them before. Thank you all for your comments and help!
