    Both Roosters, pullets don't get a pink comb until a few months old.

    I have a trio that is 7 years old, they have been fun to have and are such goofs. They are unfortunately stating to look like old men now, but still have the energy to try to take the bantam pen back, or to fight with other roosters. I will be lost without their antics. Are you not allowed roosters?

    First time chicken owner here and I didn't realize they were such characters. There's no specific rule against roosters, but we're trying to be good neighbors. We live on a .2 acre lot so there's not much distance xtn homes.

    Thx for the input drumstick and bantam.

    When mine crow, it is high pitched and squeaky, and one has and extra long squeak as he inhalers air at the end. I find it cute. They often have a Napoleon complex. You are making me want more.
