    Is it possible that one of our Ameracauna hens is cackling like a roo? A photo of the hen is in my profile picture.

    Not a crow. We have 5 chickens that are supposed to be hens. One is cackling.
    Are you saying that the Ameraucana in my profile photo is a rooster?

    I was not going to state a breed...I could be wrong but it looks like one of those Wild Game Birds? Or what ever the breed in the states is called?
    For sure not an Amueuacana Rooster.
