My egglaying Hen stands on apost and crows in the morning toward the neighbors rooster

Hoe funny is this.  My hen is a female, and a very healthy layer at that.  She is six months old, and she is horny as heck I think, crowing lately in the break of dawn and the neighbor cockerel than ruffles her feathers up and chases the younger chicks around the yeard

Ahhh,

 

Another Hen/Roo.. When rooster's are not present, the dominant hen may grow out some un-hen features. 

 

-Larger wattle and comb- May appear redder. 

-They start to cluck/crow as to sound like a roo.

-May try mounting other hen's. 

 

But whats funny is they still lay..

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Lol, yes she is definately or was the dominent hen, and her comb is the reddist and she is the biggest and top of the order. However to settle things abit, i purchased a very smal bantam rooster, whom is crowing alot. My two full grown hens did not accept him, but the teenagers whom are three and very similar in size invited him to their click. He is well protected in their hands or feathers rather. My ducks also tolerate him, So my two large red hens are outnumbered and are finally somewhat accepting of him, and no more rooster crows from my big red hen!!
