    This is a video of our five week old "old english game chicken". We don't know if it is a boy or girl. It's got a very tiny comb compared to all the others.. but we think he/she is crowing! Is he/she? What do you think? Is it a boy or a girl?

    The video isn't working for me either. Some hens do crow a little when they are about to lay an egg but others just crow a little. When does this chicken usually crow? Roosters can crow all day. Here is a sexing trick that worked for me: take the chicken and bring it inside or even the garage. Let the chicken get comfortable and then taking a hat drop it in the middle of the room. Hens will scurry away and hide but roosters will examine the hat or just look at it.


    Hope this helps!
