    Yes. After about twenty cumulative years of owning chickens, today, one of my silver seabright HENS jumped up on the lifetime gate and squalked out a crow.
    I am stunned. It was the er-er errrrr pattern. She must have really had fun with it because she continued to do it for another five minutes or so. YES she is a HEN.
    This is so funny. I love her spirit but...? really?

    I've had one of my hens crow. She hasn't done it in a long time, and it was kind of a sad crow, but she tried for a couple years.
