OH MY I purchased an ornamental group of pullets and the sent me 16 females in April. WELL my husband and I would always crow like a rooster when we go out to the coop, don't ask me why, we just did, we are weird I guess. We went on vacation for 3 weeks and my daughter watched them while we were gone. While gone my daughter sends me a video of our "Annie" AND SHE/HE IS CROWING, DARN. We started getting eggs 2weeks ago, and today I let them out to free range and looked but NO EGGS, I clean ther water and get their feed, then decide to clean the coop, I open the door an Annie turned ANDREWS is in one of the nests, he gets off and THERE a IS A NICE WARM EGG!!!! I need to know DO HENS EVER CROW....I am pretty sure now my ANDREWS turned back into ANNIE??? POSSIBLES OR NOT???

Post a picture. Roosters will sometimes go into the nests and call the hens to them. Also there is the rare crowing hen, but in my experience these have always been more elderly hens.

OH LOL! You know, I do think (it's a rarity), but a hen can crow. Can you post a picture of your hen/roo chicken so we can try and guess what it is? Do you think maybe he didn't really lay that egg, and was just sitting on another hen's egg?

X 2 - with the age of your birds, if this is a true crow I would lean towards a rooster who likes to nest hop over a pullet who is crowing.
