I read on wikepedia that dominant hens in small flocks without a roo will stop laying, and even mimick a roo, as far as crowing and trying to mate. Excuse me for being blunt, but WTH????? Has anyone ever had experiences with this? Is it rare? I have four chickens.....a red sex link (dominant), a black sex link, a wyanndette, and a black macrino. I have four specifially for the fact that it will be the ideal number for egg producation, to sustain our family. If I lose even one of my hens to this gender confusion, its not beneficial at all. Dont get me wrong, I love my girls and consisder them pets, but pets with benefits, if ya get my drift. Help!
