    And there was no crowing coming from my room this morning, where I'm housing my three new female bantam cochins. [​IMG]

    So anyway to was a baby sissy crow and I think it was from one of the younger two

    The Buff one (I really need to name them) who is about 13 months old and I'm almost 100% positive she is female, she was broody for her former owner:

    The black and white mottled about 3 months old, who is my main suspect due to his redder comb and the fact I've been calling "her" a he on accident since I got them:

    The pretty little white one, also 3 months and I think a pullet and not the crower:

    So what are you thinking?

    Well, the buff and the white look like pullets for sure, so it must be the Mottled one. However, it doesn't look very "roosterish" to me.

    I'd say it's the mottled, though usually by 3 months Roos are very evident with bantam Cochins.

    I'm hoping that it was just a weird sound from him/her, but it happened at least 2 times and sounded a lot like when my full size roosters started crowing. I'll everyone know how it develops and if there is anymore crowing.
