    MY hen has been crowing. She sounds like our rooster did when he was learning to crow. She is really not to bad at it.I separated my hens from our rooster because he was causing injuries in their backs.(need to Make Saddles for them) Not sure if she she is calling to him. She also make a noise kind of like an omm sound , like she is meditating the other birds quite down when she does it. The other hen is usually laying an egg when she does it. MY hambrug hens make lots of noises. very talkive ladies.

    Not as well as a roo, but definitely a crow.

    i only have hens, and in almost every pen i have one who has taken over the roll of the roo. Some will try to crow, some even do the rooster dance. Sometimes i feel like i'm running a girl's prison.

    My ducks are even worse. i rehomed my drake as he was being too rough with the girls. Now the ladies take turns in the kiddie pool, riding on top of each other. Nobody is getting hurt, and they take turns, so . . . . oh well. [​IMG]
