Last night I introduced a new adult rooster to my hens since butchering the old one shortly before Christmas. This morning he starting crowing as expected. What wasn't expected was that *someone* answered him! I imediately thought it must be one of my adolescent roosters because it sounded like a young male trying to crow for the first time, but both of the young males had their heads buried in their feed troughs. Eventually, I managed to see who was crowing--one of my brood hens! She never crowed before and I suspect it is due to the presence of a new rooster after nearly two months without any. But has anyone else ever had (or heard of) a hen crowing like a rooster? She was crowing multiple times during the early morning.
