    I have two Americaunas that are 5 1/2 months old. I knew Coopcake was a rooster from the time his wattles started to show, but was sure Popcorn was a girl. She doesn't have wattles, just a bunch of fluff on her cheeks and neck. But yesterday, I realized she was crowing. Does she think its funny...

    Should we introduce a new rooster to our flock?

    We recently gave away our Star Spangled Hamburg because he was spurring and scaring me, as well as attacking some of the sweet hens we have. But our hens are confused and broody even without an egg underneath them. They have been pecking each other and making very loud noises and very anxious...
