"Yes! Young birds can be very tasty! I think six months is the usual age to butcher... sometimes sooner. "

"They're just as tasty as any other young bird. They won't be mutant chickens like Cornish X (what you buy in the store), but they'll be decent. "

"Yeah. I am now certain one is a rooster, the tail feathers haev begun to change and arent up right any more.. and they haev been spending the night in the garage to dampen the crowing... Oh well, it happens. Are young roosters at all tasty? (please…"

"If they aren't laying yet, it's probably too soon to really be able to tell if they have any real rooster qualities. Do you have photos? That might help. I'm betting you have a rooster emerging. I had this happen with our first batch…"

"yea i know sexing isnt a sure thing. but they are full grown now and dont have the distinctive characteristics of a rooster. I think they are hens, who crow... time will tell i guess."

"Sounds like you may have a couple of roosters. Sexing of chickens is only 90% correct so there is always a chance of a few being roosters."

Wynodotte hen crowing

we are on our second "batch" of chickens nad decided to go with different breeds this time around to see what type suits best. Until 2 weeks ago all was good, but now our 2 laced wynodotte chicks have taken up crowing... any ideas on how to manage this? I have been looking for signs of them being male, but there aren't any...suggestions? we are in a city neighborhood and so far no complaints but I can imagine they are coming. Has anyone else experienced this problem, is it a phase?See More
