I’ve read that Hens also crow. I am also not sure her/his breed. Named her Mona after my mom and my dad said the crowing sounds like her. 😂

Thanks!

That's a cockerel. For future reference: ANY crowing bird <20 weeks is male.
The whole "hens crowing thing" is very rare and only happens in adult females, and is caused by hormone imbalances or environmental factors. I have a hen who crows when stressed, but she only started the habit after she was a year old.

I had a hen who tried to crow, she wasn't very good at crowing and it stopped when one of our hatchlings turned out to be a cockerel. :lau
