    I have 29 chickens that I've raised since chicks purchased in March and April. Two of them are obvious roosters and quite loud. There is a 3rd that acts and looks like a roo but doesn't make a sound. My one rooster, Charlie chases this alone around the run. They 5 months old at least now. Could I have a quiet rooster? I'll try to add a pic but it never seems to get added...

    interesting read! Well since she isn't crowing I will give her female name... But I'm not giving her a sex change operation no matter how badly she wants to be a rooster, just saying.

    How is it you think this bird looks like a cockerel, exactly? The bird pictured looks all pullet to me.

    I, too, think that the bird pictured is actually a pullet.

    Mainly because I'm brand new on chickens lol. I don't know much about breeds yet or how to really tell between male or female. Except I do have two obvious (I hope obvious) roosters.

    Looks like a white Rock pullet at point of lay. Charlie's not chasing her around to fight with her [​IMG]
