- She crows like a rooster - though it's more like a loud "coo-coo", and not as powerful as the rooster's.
- She never submits to the rooster, while the other hen's do. She ALWAYS fights back and stands her ground. In fact, she's tried to mount the rooster and that makes him jump a mile!
- She mounts the other hens quite aggressively
- To top it all off, she IS a layer. Her eggs are less frequent and smaller, but they do come.
Has anyone heard of or seen this before?? This was our first rooster, so we were getting used to that when this hen started acting strange - they were chicks together. He is a protective rooster and definitely keeps the other hens in line, except this one.
I've attached a picture of them - they are bug, black birds with blue/black sheen. They appear to be male/female, but are they two roosters?
Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!!
