    My beautiful Australorp hen started crowing this morning. She is 12 weeks old. What do you think?

    Rooster. Comb is too big for a 12 week old hen.

    My grandma always said, "A whistling girl and a crowing hen always come to some bad end."

    I think the bad end is it looks just like my two BA Roos that just started crowing and then after crowing a week or two they have gotten frisky with the ladies...
