    I have 4, 17 week old pulletss. Two days ago I had 4 hens and a rooster that was sexed incorrectly. Two days ago I gave the rooster away. This morning I woke up to one of my hens crowing. I am sure they are all hens.

    Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Please post some pictures of your flock. I've heard of hens crowing, but it is extremely rare.
