    or do I have a manly hen? [​IMG] We have a chicken that I SWORE was a roo. Looks like our other roos (comb & wattle wise) and a lady even brought "it" back after she bought it because it crowed (I wasnt home when she came so the kids picked out the hens for her). I was planning on taking it to the auction monday, but a few days ago Jerry tried mating with it. It squawked and tried to get away. I laughed and told Jerry he was chasing the wrong chicken. Since then Mr. Deeds mated with it and it squatted for him...I am now assuming it is a hen...Or I have some seriously confused chickens on my hands.
