    Sometimes, when there no rooster in a flock, a hen will take a rooster's job and start crowing. It is usually the hen with the largest comb. Sorry about the aggression though! [​IMG]

    you should post a pic under the What Breed or Gender Is This section... maybe it's a rooster. Lots of experts there can
    give their opinion.

    If a hen's ovary is damaged, the hen can actually change into a rooster!
