    I've had the Fastos for over 3 years, a pair of identical BOs, sweet as pie. Well just this summer one of them started crowing in the morning! A genuine crow, though somewhat weak. But it's loud enough to get me out if bed, to quiet her down with some scratch.
    Have you ever heard of this? I'm sure she is a hen as she is identical yo the other and this only started this year.

    I have heard of hens crowing. None of mine ever did though, except one when she landed on my washing line and nearly fell off. But I think that was more of a "oh ****" than a crow!
