I live in town and can't have roosters but wanted two more hens. I bought two "sexed pullets" from a farmer but when it was clear they had started growing saddle feathers I took them back (he said he would exchange them if they were roosters.) He didn't; he still said they were hens and sent me home and told me to come back when they were crowing. Four months later they just found out they were bigger than my four hens and asserted their dominance including crowing. The farmer honored his word and exchanged for two more birds but I think the barred rock he gave me is also a rooster. My husband is angry with me for not being more assertive at the farm when I questioned whether this was really a hen. So, before I go back again and tell the farmer who thinks this is a hen is really a rooster, I would love an expert opinion to confirm or deny what I believe. If I make another mistake my husband will be so mad at me and I am having trouble trusting this farmer. Please also tell me how you know its a rooster so I can defend why I think so.
