I have a 20 week old Araucana "hen", and there has been crowing the last couple of mornings! The hen was sold to me as female by a reputable breeder at 14 weeks of age. The crowing is a bit croaky though, and stopped when I let them out at 6am. I believe Araucanas are difficult to sex, but surely it would be quite obvious that it is a rooster at 20 weeks, right? There are no spurs, and not a huge comb/wattle (i attach pictures). Our flock is made of of 4 hens only. Please advise if it's just a confused hen (it's quite a bossy chicken - flapping wings when let out to roam, puffing feathers, chasing the other chickens, agressively jumping on other chickens (not mating though), etc), or maybe hormonal imbalance? Or is it really a rooster/cockerel?? (It's a UK-type Araucana, so not a rumpless variety. I live in New Zealand) Physically it looks like a pullet to me (though larger than the other chickens, but Araucanas grow quite fast i believe). I can't see anything physically that looks like a cockerel (no saddle feathers, or hackle feathers)? If it's a hen, what can i do to stop this behaviour?
