    Hello- I have this bird we thought was a hen but today started crowing. I have read that hens can crow. What do you think a hen or rooster?[​IMG]

    Looking at the lovely long, thin, pointy hackle and saddle feathers I'd say it's a beautiful rooster.

    I agree, it seems like a rooster.

    That is most definitely a rooster.
