    When I came home today my wife informed me she was awaken at noon (works nights) by the sound of a rooster crowing, this from our cage full of hens.[​IMG] I've had questions about the sex of this one particular chicken and was wondering do hens make this sound?

    Often times, if you're not sure of the sex, eventually a crow will solve that mystery for you......[​IMG]
