Hi, my name is Melissa. I posted this little chicken on our local FB Backyard chickens group today as a free roo. Several people told me that they think it's a hen. But of it's a hen, why does she crow...starting at 5am in the morning??? Please help me know what this chicken is. He/she was hatched, I think in April of this year. I've sent a message to my friend, the original owner, to find out hatch date. This little fella/stella was a school hatch project that was given to me July 8th. It first crowed July 10th and originally the crow sounded like a toddler yelling, "Ahhhh!" I can't tell you how many times I ran to my back yard to make sure that my kid's were okay. Yep, they're fine..."it's just the chicken, momma." They'd tell me. Haha! So, please help me...what is it? If it's a hen...I'm keeping her...crow 'n all.
