    I recently lost 3 of my 4 hens to a preditor leaving one lonely hen. She lays an egg about every 3 days but recently began crowing like a rooster every morning. Will this behavior stop once I introduce my new hens on order or am I going to have a permanent neighborhood alarm clock ?

    She may continue to act as the rooster if there isn't one in the flock. After you add more hens, the pecking order change her status, though....
