    Yes I am sure she is a hen has chicks. She will just throw her head back and crow. I have never seen any thing like it.

    It's so funny when they try to do that! I have one hen that tries but not much comes out!

    I have 1 or 2 that try, but not very good at it. The weird thing is one is 4-5 years old and started growing spurs this year. [​IMG]

    Must be dealing with surge of testosterone. Could you post a picture of her? Need not be crowing.
