So, this morning I wake to a crowing rooster. I don't have a rooster, it must be the neighbor's right? Wrong. My six month old Blue Langshan is flapping "her" wings and crowing right before sunrise this morning! As I stood at the back door with my jaw slack, I thought, how could that be? Here are the facts She is a HUGE bird, standing twice the height of the other birds She is six months old and NEVER crowed before now. (odd, right?) She doesn't corral the other girls and never seen her try to mate She has a comb and a waddle, but both genders of this breed seem to She has pretty tail feathers, but they stand up, not arching down and hanging like the pictures of this breed's male. She's not quite old enough to lay yet, but any time now, and I haven't seen any "new' brown eggs. And, finally, no, I don't have a photo with me, but if I remember, I'll take one when I get home. So, my question is, can hens crow, if they're feelin' froggy? I've heard a hen can take a male role, if there is no rooster. True? It's getting worse! Earlier crowing and longer period of time! I don't see an attachment button for photos! Who can help me?
