What the ____ is going on in our coop? We got our 7 poults over the summer, already 12+ weeks old. We added these average sized girls to our bantam roo. We then added 3 mature hens. The only crowing we've heard is our bantam roo. We questioned one of our barred rock poults at one point because of her large comb (much larger than sister's). We then started getting an egg a day, from said roo looking hen. (I would see her sit, get up and an egg be there so I'm quite sure it's her). So, since then we've isolated the roo to the other end of the house cause we think our scovies were beating him up. So, barred rock sister now has large comb like sis. Nothing too obnoxious. They are the same age and sister as far as I know has yet to lay an egg. They are the same age and #2 sis (they are both named Eliza Jane) has been laying for abaout 6-8 weeks. So anyway DH told me he heard a weird noise from the big coop. Alsmoat roo like. So I just heard it...sounded like a grouning/screming chicken. Then our roo down the yard crowed and there was a definite cock-a-doodle-doo from the big coop.. Would a roo wait this long to start to crow???? Our bantam roo has a very distinct crow, and it's all we've heard till now. I am so confused.
