    Hi lovelies,

    I have two Plymouth rock, two light Sussex x, two Wheatens and a Gold laced Hamburg. One of them decided to crow at three in the morning. I am having trouble determining which it is. Please help me. Here are some pictures.[​IMG]Henny, a Wheaten

    [​IMG]Bow and Lace are the Light Sussex x

    [​IMG]Raya and Ripple are the Plymouth Rocks

    [​IMG]Here is another picture of Ripple - I am pretty sure he is the culprit?

    It's Ripple, who by the way is a very nice barred bird! Where did you get him? His barring is nicer than usual hatchery stock. Raya's may be also, just harder to see in the pic.

    It's little Ripple. If you have a cockerel and hear crowing for the first time, it's the cockerel.
