So I have an Appenzeller Spitzahauben named Madeline. She is a year and 2 weeks old and lives with 4 other sisters (differing breeds) since I got her as a day old. No rooster. Madeline seems to be dabbling her little chickeny toe beans into the rooster pool. She has always had rather large "horns" and wattles for a hen but I just chalked it up to sub-standard breeding (hatchery stock). She consistently gives me 4-5 eggs a week and hers are the only white ones so it is easy to keep track. Today while free ranging I was startled by what seemed to be a goose honking in the yard!! I live in a neighborhood with no other chickens or livestock and ran out to see what was going on. All chooks were happily kicking around in the dirt so I figured maybe some geese had flown over head. Ten minutes later I see Madeline stretch up and make the honking noise while flapping!! It sounded reeeemarkably like a half arsed crow but I can't believe it and am calling it a honking noise for now. Madeline doesn't have spurs but she does have big nubs where the other girls have just barely there buttons on their legs. Is my girl trying to tell me she wants to be called Mikey rather than Madeline? I am supportive either way just trying to get an idea of if this is normal hen behavior or if she does have rooster bits tucked away. Any help or advice would be appreciated, especially if you have had the same happen to you!
