Is there an age where I might expect roosters, if I have them, to start crowing? I have 4 nine-week old Cuckoo Marans (one, possibly two, of whom I am freaking out about maybe being roosters as roosters aren't allowed in my town) and 4 nine-week old New Hampshire Reds. So far, every single one of them peeps. No cluck cluck noises even, all peep. (though one, when surprised when putting in the coop one night did let out a very grown up 'bah GAH' noise). The comb on one of the Marans is just slightly bigger than the others, but then again "she" is also smaller than the others. Tail feathers all look the same size to me on all of them. Two of my bigger Reds have wattles just a tiny bit longer than the other girls' but otherwise everything looks the same. SO, very naive and possibly unanswerable question but if anyone can assist, I'd be very grateful! ETA: Ok so here are the photos. Yes I'm pretty sure that I have two boys here, based on their much lighter color if nothing else. Combs aren't *too* much bigger than the other Marans. Their body types look exactly the same to me, but I readily admit that I am wishing them female every time I look at them. This is Enox, taken today at 9 weeks 3 days (ish) This is Haw taken for comparison. 9 weeks 3 days Haw and Enox. Enox is actually smaller than the other Marans. Stella, the other hopefully girl. "She" is the next smallest. Same age, 9 weeks, 3 days . I couldn't get a good photo of Georgia, the other Marans, but she is dark, like Haw. While I've felt from the start that Enox would be my dominant hen, I have actually seen that the definite girls have been the bossier ones.
