I received a pair of 8-12 week red-laced Wyandotte hens in the mail in late January. As they grew, I noticed one was bigger than the other, and seemed to be shaped differently. When they were about 3 months old it became clear one was not nearly as big or as "stacked" as the other. Then one morning, the smaller one crowed at me, confirming my suspicions that "she" was really a rooster. I had to get rid of him because we're not allowed to have roosters in our subdivision (don't worry, I didnt' kill him). Well, his sister is about 5-6 months old, and obviously shaped like a girl. However, yesterday I heard her crow. I saw her with my own eyes as she did it, and it sounded an awful lot like the "cockadoodledoo" of a rooster. Now, I know she's a girl, and I know hens make many different noises, but can a hen actually crow like (or almost like) a rooster?!? Anyone ever heard/seen such a thing??
