    So I have NO clue which one of my 18 week olds is a roosster, but about midnight last night and first thing this morning, I hear this pathetic cock-a-doodle doo, that definitely sounded like it needed work. Problem is, I have no idea which one of my 6 it could be! None of them look like roosters....by 18 weeks wouldnt a rooster be developing a wattle and comb? I only have on EE than has a red comb, but its not pronounced at all. I posted pics of her a few weeks ago and everyone said pullet. We tried to spy in the coop to see which one was doing it but had no luck. What do I do?? How on earth do I have a male in there, none of them look at all like males! I cant have roosters in the city, and I have one neighbor who will blow a gasket so i need to address this soon. TIA!!!

    Sorry I cant put pix directly on here from my ipad .... http://s994.photobucket.com/albums/af68/babyrn73/ ....The first FOUR pics are from today. Thanks a ton for your help! My DH said this morning "you better consult your people fast" ...so thanks "my people" LOL!

    If he is a Roo....Next, what do I do, CL? Free? I have to get him out fast but I dont want to kill him. [​IMG] Poor Chicken Boo
