    My little brabanters are not babies exactly six weeks we are hearing our first crow! How do I know it's the first...they are still in the living room![​IMG]
    I bet daddy builds the baby coop soon![​IMG] There are 25 in many will be crowing by the end of the week???
    At this point I am still at a loss as far as sexing Brabanters...this is a step in the right direction. This one happens to have a smaller feather tuft...if one of my big featherheads starts to crow...all is lost.

    Mine turned 6 wks yesterday and this morning one of the EE's made a funny squacky noise this morning when I opened the top and they all flew up to greet me.

    Only thing is - I think they are all pullets. None have a large comb -just the shortish pinkish slightly redish combs, all have fanning tail feathers, and wing feathers are all growing in straight across - none are longer.

    Interested in knowing if the pullets start to squack pre-crow?
