Hi everyone! So right now, I have a neighbor who can here what i'm doing... I don't know the sexes of my chicks yet. I think Chatterbox is a girl, because she's quite small, and i'm pretty sure Intuite and Gizmo are girls too because they were a couple of the smallest out of a entire flock of them. I really have grown attached to all my birds rooster or not and wouldn't want to give one up. You're alloud to own chickens here, you can have a rooster but it has to be more than 100 feet from your house and 300 from your neighbors, and where the chickens coop is, it isn't that distance. I can probably "sneak" a rooster in my backyard as long as it is not "cockadoodledooing" all day. Have you ever heard of a quite rooster. Also, any tips to keep the chickens quite during the day? None of the neighbors have complained yet (there are also lots of wild parrots which luckily muffle the chickens), but it's better to be safe than sorry. So you find your chickens are quite when you give them treats or boredom breakers? Also, Speckles seems to be the leader of the flock, and since she was 2 weeks old, she has had a bald red spot above her beak and under her chin (like where the rubbery red thing goes lol forgot what it's called).
