I have what I thought was three hens. I was getting three eggs a day, give or take, until this last cold snap. I woke up this am to the youngest Cock-a-doodle-dooing. Loudly. Proudly. I couldn't believe it till I went out and saw for myself. Yep, it was crowing alright. My question is do hens crow if there is no rooster? If not then I guess one of my hens is a very good producer of eggs taking up the slack. You don't think the three of them conspired to keep the little guy out of the pot do you? My city ord does not allow roos.... so I am really hoping that hens crow!!!
