I did do a search on this, I found out so far that an Andulusian (sp) type hen might crow. When I say crow, I mean "cock a doodle do"

This morning I heard "cocka doodle do" really loud ! I have 2 red sex links and a mutt. Ruby is the boss (red sex link) could she have done that? I need a little verification on that it does happen?

There are no other chickens in my area at all. At first I thought there was a wild rooster in my yard. No it was Ruby. Is this really true? I can't have a rooster for obvious reasons, I'm hoping it only happens once in a blue moon.

from what I have read - a hen will crow when no rooster is around. and you are sure Ruby is a hen - laying eggs and all ?

maybe she will only done it once in awhile ??

Oh - I had to step out for awhile.. Yes Ruby is a girl, I've had her since May and she lays a big brown egg for me every day, even all winter with an exception of a day or two. My three are girls. I just went out to look around in the woods behind me.... nothing indicates a rooster is around, and when I looked at Ruby she gave me the "I didn't do it" look.

I'm kinda stumped.
