    I have a month-old polish pullet (or she should be a pullet...) who really likes to yell. It's not a rooster crow, just a single loud, piercing cry, although she does do the classic pose roosters do when they crow. She'll do it at any time of the day. This is the first time I've ever had chickens; what's going on?

    can you post a picture for confirmation that she is a she and also what breed is she?

    She's a white-crested black polish.

    can you get a close up of her head? from both the front and the side?

    I'm pretty sure that's a rooster.
