We are first-time city chicken owners and we will only be having 2 hens altogether. we've had The Barred Rock in the picture (not fully mature) for a few months, a very sweet pet and likes to ride around on my shoulder. Yesterday we traded in the young rooster for this black Americauna. "She" really seems to like it here and the 2 get along fine. 2 questions about the Americauna: 1. Is this a hen ? 2. do Americauna's crow a lot? This one clucked a lot last night during free-range time right after we brought her home. I thought she was just looking for her flock. But this morning she was clucking so loud it sounded like a Crow (the bird American Crow). Unfortunately we can not keep a loud crower. She's pretty quiet in the tractor, so everything's fine for now. she is only loud during her free-range time . We talked to the poultry dealer this morning and he said it sounded like she is just happy. Thoughts?
