    This hen... I thought she was a rooster from early on because she used to challenge and fight with our know rooster. At around 6.5 months she suddenly started laying eggs and so to my relief it was definitely a she. But now she has taken up crowing. Not all the time, but every once in a while she will do a quieter than a rooster hen crow.[​IMG]
    I think its especially funny because she is NOT the dominant hen. The silkie is! Just wanted to share with you all, this is not an unheard of scenario though usually the crowing hen is the dominant one!

    Sometimes a hen will crow just because she is healthy and feels good.
