OK, so this is Doby, a 6 month old Easter Egger. She is much smaller than her counterparts (different breeds) and has always been much more shy/standoffish. I've always wondered if she was a cockerel because her body shape was different than the Buff Orp and Barred Rock hens. But, she's never crowed, like I would expect a rooster to crow, so at 6 months, I'd put my mind at ease that she is hen. Well this morning, she started squawking terribly. Not crowing, but cluck-cluck-cluck-SQUAWK!. I cant see anything wrong with her. So, 1) Is she a he and just now starting to 'crow' 2) Maybe she's getting ready to lay? If she's a roo, I'll have to get rid of her. :-( Here are a couple of pics. Again, she's 6 months now. Thanks!
