Hi. I have a silkie hen who recently layed her first egg. Before she laid it she was acting like a rooster, did "the dance" a couple times, crowed every morning with her man, and started pecking some of our new poulets. I am positive the egg was hers, and here are my reasons why: 1 I put her in her own nesting box for the night to sleep, and the next day I came out to check on everyone and feed, water, etc, and there was the egg, laying in the spot she had slept in 2 the egg is half the size of our other hen's eggs (when they where laying >:l). 3 none of the other hens or poulets ever go in her box, only her man (her silkie brother/boyfriend) would sometimes sleep in it with her, but usually he would curl up by the heated water dish, or in the far corner towards the back of the coop. 4, none of our hens have layed n a while, one has never laid one in her life, so obviously it wasn't their's. Please help. She hasn't been showing as much rooster behavior since the egg, but still sings the song of her people in the morning. Unfortunatly, our rooster's crow sounds like a deranged hyena, and her's sounds like she's being eaten alive and screaming for help. urg. Would a NOCrow collar work on her? Our roo has one but it dosen't really help. She is so sweet towards people, and will fall asleep in your arms, and occasionally preen your hand. Is there any way to get her to stop crowing, besides NOCrow? Thanks!
