    "It" is a yard ornament
    Has never laid an egg
    crows
    has small spurs
    has wattles
    never spars/fights with others

    We thought at first that she was just a big hen, ever time introduced to the pen, "It" would got to the top roost and stay there.

    Will "it" ever lay an egg?
    Is there anything I can give to help egg production
    I'm thinking a hormone imbalance or "It" has some male parts

    Maybe it's a hen that turned into a roo?

    They crow, grow spurs, and stop laying eggs.

    Some hens crow and still lays eggs, but some stop laying.
