We are relatively new chicken owners (almost a year) and discovered this morning that our buff Orpington is not the hen that we purchased as a pullet last winter, but is in fact a rooster. He let us know this morning by issuing his first crows. We had not even noticed a voice practice in the past few months that would have stirred our suspicions. We did note that she looked different than our other hens, but she was the only Orpington, so we had no frame of reference. So, now we are in a pickle. We live in uptown Denver. And, granted, the city is reviewing new legislation to determine if citizens can have up to 8 chickens without a permit, but still roosters are a big NO WAY in the city. We really do not want to see our Roo culled, as there have been no problems with behavior, etc. But, I need options or resources to rehome this bird asap. I feel terrible with the crowing at 5:45 am and can imagine that my neighbors feel the same. Any thoughts?
