They do crow occasionally
Both of those are female.
Adiii. Do me a favor. Do a thread search for Egg song. You should be able to find an audio clip of it. Listen to it, and see if that is what your "rooster" crowing sounds like!
It doesn't really sound like the egg song. I would describe that more as a clucking sound and I've never heard them do it as loud as that. It's more like for a few seconds then they go about their business. So now you guys have got me wondering if it is in actual fact a hen! The only way of knowing for certain is if they lay an egg again...so my new question is how often will they lay. Will it be everyday or once every few days....hope it lays tomorrow so I can confirm it. Also is the first egg ok to eat? Or do I keep it incase the red chicken is a cock?
If the egg is fresh, not cracked eat it, both birds are females so no fertilized eggs.
Both are pullets.
Well, all hens have the physical capability to crow, they usually just don't use it. Some egg-laying hens do crow and have spurs. Yours look a lot like hens, especially if they are older than 6 months!
It looks like a Turken chicken to me...
When chickens first start laying eggs it can be several days and even a couple weeks between the first egg and the second egg. I also say hens for both of your neat chickens.
My hens cluck and chatter loudly at times. None of mine crow but could I suppose since they have the ability. Hens can be quite loud when talking to each other.
