    Please help!
    I bought two hens from my Schools Agriculture farm and one of my 'Pullets' wont stop crwoing. Pepper who is younger is very quiet and Bumble is high in the pecking order and crows. Im really scared shes a cockeral! Shes my familys favorite chicken because shes easy to handle but she doesnt like my dad and always attacks the back of his legs. is that a problem!? I dont want her to be a boy. My dad said 'If its a rooster. It goes to heavan!" And now im really scared and didnt know where to ask.. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Pics of comb, wattles hackle and saddle feathers would help, but if it is crowing, it likely is a cockerel.

    Hmm, I hopee not.. [​IMG] She/He is nice around everyone else but my dad. She/He obeys me and actually does what say. [​IMG] Its weird but its probably because i raised them both from hatch.

    She does sleep in the nest boxes though. I have placed dummy eggs in there.. She also loves hiding under the hedges.
