Long story short---had 4 hens, after a while realized one was a rooster. Due to city law, had to replace him with a different hen. So now two of the hens have red wattlers and comb, but one is only laying---the other two are a little behind. A farmer told me that some times when a rooster leaves the hen on the top of the picking order will take over the rooster roll and NEVER lay any eggs??? Has anyone heard this or is this just a "farmer tale"?
