    Hey everyone been following along for a while now finally made an account. I am from Lancaster California. I have three hens, two red sex links and one white giant cochins that thinks its a rooster...

    By rooster I mean she crows all day heards the two reds and protects them from other birds my dogs and cats. Dominates and defeathers the other two. And she lays an egg almost once a day haha.

    Anyone else have that problem? A large hen that took a roosters roll. She is twice the size of the two reds. Problem is i cant have a "rooster" and have to find a new home for her.

    Oh my name is Joel lol. ill post some pics in a bit.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] In the absence of a rooster a hen will sometimes take over the role, start "crowing", mount the other hens, etc. Since your hen is not technically a rooster, why do you have to rehome her? Did someone complain about her crowing?
