One of our Buffed Orpington's started crowing and caught it on video this morning.
I've heard that hens can crow, but never would have thought they could really sound like a roo.
Does she lay eggs??????
She was a very good egg layer but she's about 3-1/2 years old now and eggs are few. The crowing is fairly recent however, she's running the show out there for sure, top dog.
Do you think this could be early menopause ?
She's lovely. Glad you were able to document this with your video.
That is quite a pretty sounding crow. I have read about top hens crowing occasionally. I never thought I would hear one of my hens crow because I have roosters around. But last fall one of my older hens, who is going through an extended "henopause" crowed when she was left alone in the barn. She did it occasionally when she about a month or so, only when she was alone. I might have heard her crow once this spring, but it has been quite a while since I have heard her crow.
