I have a hen that in the last couple of weeks has started acting like a rooster. She is 2 years old and lays eggs. Recently when I let them out to free-range she started squawking like a rooster whenever she found food, she has never done this before and was always the greediest hen. This has been going on for a couple of weeks and now she has her own flock of three hens and the rooster is only left with one. I don't know if she is still laying but she was recently broody. Does anyone know why she is acting like this? I included a picture of the hen.
