Silly question but I've never had really young chickens (these came from a person vs feedstore). Do young - as in not yet egg-laying age - hens ever crow? Make a sort of a CUkoo sort of sound? We recently acquired a group of young chickens - past chickies but not pullets that were all supposed to be hens (though so far 7 of 15 were roosters!). One looks like a hen - no plummy tail, no long legs, no spurs - sort of short and plumpish. This one has been injured and says out of the chicken yard away from the others who pick on it. This one chicken has recently started crowing - sort of. So - do young hens ever crow?
