    I was suspicious of this hen not being an EE since shes missing some of the characteristics that my other EEs have.
    I was determined to see what color egg she was laying and I wasnt surprised at the brown egg, but what happened immediately after surprised me for sure!

    One of my hens crows also, but only when I don't have a roo. Its pretty funny to hear.
     
  6. That is funny. I have heard my hens make some real odd sounds but they haven't crowed yet. Haha

    Do you have a cock/erel(s)?

    Have you heard this before and not known it was her?

    Yes, I have 4 roos.. never heard her do this, didn't have any idea she was going to. I just had too much time on my hands (this is what happens when I take a whole week off work) I spend too much time with the chickens :)

    I've got this little project, I'm trying to make picture collages with each hen and the egg she lays.. again too much time on my hands (lol). That's how I caught it. Her collage looks like this.

    Now if my roosters start laying eggs, I'll have to rename them Caitlyn..
