7 months Hen sebright crowing all of the sudden!?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have 3 hens two Cochins and one sebright. They are roughly 7 months old. I originally got two se bright chicks but one ended up being a rooster it was very obvious loud crowing looked exactly like a regular sebright rooster and we have a rooster ordnance so I had to re home it. My two Cochins just started laying in the last two weeks and I have yet to see a egg from our sebright..well all of the sudden today in the yard she started to crow. She has no features of a rooster at all. Could this just be a one time thing is she/he a late bloomer is it even possible that it could be a rooster? Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen. I would hate to re home her!

Hens do crow sometimes I have never heard mine doing it but hens do and can crow sometimes hope this helps

Sebrights are hen feathered, meaning both sexes have the same feathering, if it's crowing it's a rooster.

I have had two golden Sebright hens, they both crowed and did a darn good job of it.  One has passed, still have the other.  These are proven hens, both lay eggs, the older one would occasionally go stubbornly broody.  Can you post a pic of your bird?

X2. Hen feathered breeds are tough to sex, however if it's crowing at a young age it is a cockerel.
