Australorp crowing in the morning

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

One of my Australorp hens has started crowing in the morning, and so after a week of getting attached, we have to return her to the farm this weekend and get another female. I'm still finding it hard to physically see the characteristics of her masculinity, although his boy behaviours gave me enough suspicion before he crowed during the week.

 

Can you guess from my photos below, which one you think might be crowing? I did read that sometimes female Australorps can crow and he/she has been doing it in response to a rooster from a distant property at about 6am when I let them out of their yard. I've had roosters and hens before and raised chicks, but this one is stumping me as haven't kept Australorps before and they are much much bigger hens.

The middle bird is male.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Double thread. I posted my answer on the other one.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Agreed

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

posted my answer on your duplicate thread.  - still the middle bird.  Double posting makes it more confusing to those trying to answer you.
