    hello- we got our first flock a month ago and picked a few breeds..... one was a 'mutt' but very sweet and friendly. All are about 4 months old..... low and behold- someone is crowing and I think it's the mutt. She/he is clearly the dominant one, is bigger, and seems to keep everyone in line- i suspect this is the crowing culprit....
    Opinions on breed and gender please!!!

    If I had to guess from the pictures I would say the light /white one was your crower.

    He is very pretty. Roos are usually the prettiest.

    Advertise on FB or craigslist or in the Free Rehoming section of BYC. This time of year there are loads of unwanted cockerels, all looking for new homes, so be prepared that someone may take him with the intention of making him dinner.
