    My Ameracauna hen, Nyra, certainly has some nice spurs! They've grown a lot this past couple weeks. [​IMG]

    Those are impressive. She is doing better than my roosters.

    Wow, how old is your hen?

    I've never had a hen grow spurs, but I have had a hen who crowed! :lol:
    She took on the role of crowing after she was in isolation after an injury. Once she was returned to the flock months later, the crowing stopped.
    I guess she just wanted to test out her vocal chords!

    Enjoy your birds! :)

    I might have a hen with spurs... It's an EE, and all of my roosters try to mount it....I totally thought it was a hen til I noticed that it had spurs. so, now I've changed the name from precious to shaggy lol. So now you have me wondering if its a hen or a roo.

    Does a crowing hen sound different than a rooster?

    Her crow was very deep and lacked the correct amount of syllables. When I had first heard it, I rushed over to see my hen, thinking she had something lodged in her throat and she was choking.
    It took me a few days to realize she was crowing and not dying. :lol:
