    Hi everyone, I recently got a six month old Rosecomb pullet. She stays inside the house and has free range of the second floor. For the past few weeks she has been crowing every morning. It's not a full crow though, it just sounds like she's trying to do it. She does this about a dozen times every day when we get up. From what I know, she lived with mostly boys so I'm thinking she just picked it up from them. Is this normal? Or is there a chance she could be a cockerel? Here's some pictures of her:[​IMG]

    Thanks for the reply. How can you tell? I saw her (him?) with the other roosters she lived with and she looked very different from them.
     
  4. Tail, hackle feathers, ears and the very red comb and wattles.....I am still saying Rooster....

    Hopefully these are clearer. My phone doesn't take the best pictures and my camera is dead. Plus someone doesn't want to sit still for pictures.[​IMG]

    And could that be a spur?

    Still not any better. Natural lighting please, and the photos really need to show the feathering very crisply.
