    Sorry, y'all.... I'm a new chicken owner...

    I'm really concerned about the possibility of owning a rooster. (I live in the city) ((bummer)) we've had our "hens" for about 16 weeks now and they're start to crow in the morning... like, real cockadoodle doo crows....... Not pleasant for us and the neighbors. :/

    I took a video. Can anyone confirm or comment?

    How old are they? I believe the barred bird is a rooster.

    The Barred Rock is the chicken that crowing.

    Based on the tail feathers alone....?

    I agree with the others that the barred is the only rooster, the rest look to be hens.
