Hello! I am new to the whole chicken scene. My chickens are about 20 weeks old. I thought I had 3 hens. However, my most dominant chicken began crowing (my mixed colored one). I looked up some threads and read that hens may crow if there is no rooster in the flock. The crowing gets fairly loud so I started putting her/him in the garage. Then my all brown/red chicken began to make noises. Afraid that I have two roosters, I looked up some general characteristics (I know I have chicken "mutts") of male chickens. The wattle and combs and the feathering at the neck and tail. Again I think I have two roos and one hen. Please let me know what you think!! Thank you!
