    Hi all, we need help! This morning one of the chickens started crowing but we don't know which one. It *could* also be one of our neighbours but their chickens are only about 3 months old. Ours are about 5 months now and we have narrowed it down to these 2 of our four..Could anyone help identify whether these two are boys or girls please? They are different breeds as well. We are devastated that one of them would have to go :(

    They both look like boys to me. Although, if it makes you feel any better, I had to find a home for my olive egger that lays the most gorgeous sage green eggs. SHE CROWED EVERY MORNING...

    I bought 4 pullets and 3 were cockerels. I was truly devastated because you get attached to them especially if you raise them from day 1. I did find a local farm that had ready to lay hens that are like dogs. They won't leave me be until I pet them.

    I'm sorry you have to go through the devastation of this.
