...after I got rid of the 9-week cockerel. I've read that this is normal...but will she ever stop? She's a Cuckoo Maran and is housed with a Jersey Giant pullet of the same age. I'm gradually introducing them to my 2 Australorp hens who are about 19 months old and plan to put them all together in another month or so, assuming aggression is minimal among them. Does every roosterless flock have a dominant hen? If so, does that hen usually persist in crowing? I live in the suburbs and promised my neighbors that I wouldn't have roosters. Now I may have a problem...but once she starts laying I'll be able to give them eggs more often which may help.
