I got rid of every chicken that I thought was a rooster. I only kept the hens and one chosen roo......NOW I have an Orpington which was supposed to be a hen, is crowing! The Araucana roo that I chose hasn't made a peep! I have Orpington, Wyandotte and Araucanas. My question is will they mature at different times (crow, lay eggs), Or is it more likely my Araucana I was sure is a roo is probably a pullet? This Araucana is red in the face and is signifigantly larger than the other Araucanas. the Orpingtons are HUGE compared to everyone else! I am wondering if he is just quiet because the Orpington is dominant? Next time I will wait until they crow or lay an egg to give away any extra roos!
