    I have this one hen (Trust me, she is 100% hen), and she does these.... like, um.... I don't really know how to explain it. They're kinda like "BAAU" Things. She's the only one who does it. She cracks me up! [​IMG]

    I think that happens occasionally. More so if there is no rooster present.
    I have a hen that crowed badly for a while. Hasn't done it in months. Started when she was over 3 years old. Funny thing she also grew spurs then too.

    One of my hens crows sometimes. I'm not sure which one it is, but I think it might be my EE, because once the crowing stops, an egg song starts, and then i usually find a green egg. It doesn't happen often, but I've woken up to it a few times. I'm terrified the neighbors will complain, we don't have a rooster for that very reason.
