    This Bantam is about 3 months old and has started crowing sometimes in the middle of the day but not that often. Seems to be somewhat aggressively controlling the others and I have seen it biting at their necks and sometimes even getting on top of some of the others. Everything points to rooster but I want to be sure. I have read lots of info about hens that behave just like roosters. Thanks![​IMG]

    Wow, that was quick! I guess if there are no opposing viewpoints...

    Nope, that is definitely a rooster and sounds like he knows his job already!

    Yeah, unfortunately he's going to have to do his job somewhere else. Our property isn't big enough to allow for a rooster by county ordinance. [​IMG]
