    Any ideas as to why she makes this noise. I call it a girl but I am unsure as if yet if it really it is. It sounds like a miniature rooster crow. My video is too large will try to upload another one. She is 7 weeks this Thursday. Can a rooster crow that early??

    Oh yeah, that looks like a little boy. They can definitely try crowing that young though most don't.

    Yes a cockerel can Crow at this age and even younger. The photo is not entirely clear but does appear to show a bird showing signs of early maturity which would point to a cockerel and there does appear to be some shading and coloring on the wings that would also be indicative of this .can you get a more clear photo from the side of the bird so I can see the wings clearly? Can you get a photo in the natural lighting such as outside that would show the true color of the comb at this
