    My son mentioned today he remembered seeing a few youtube videos of hens that happened to learn how to crow. Are those videos real and if so how often can a hen learn to crow?

    My sister-in-law had a hen that crowed like a rooster. They called her a "hooster" lol

    There is an old saying I read in the 'Little House On The Prairie' books- Whistling girls and crowing hens always come to some bad ends [​IMG]
