    What is everyone's thought on this.. we all thought it was a hen, follows the rooster around like its girlfriend, talks like the other hens just no rooster characteristics. Well someone at the farm insisted they heard it crow today.

    I guess we will wait and see but thought this might be fun anyway..

    Thats ok.. he is a sweetie... we have tons of hens for him, but for some reason he is in love with the rhode island red rooster, thats why we thought he was a hen. He follows him around and hangs right with him.Maybe he swings that way. Lol...
