My hens were given as a gift. They are Rhode Island Reds.. about 7 months old. I am new to chickens but I really enjoy them. We started with 3 hens , 1 escaped and got attacked you a neighborhood dog. We have 2 left and they sure are spolied. Just a couple days ago rhode runner started making this weird rooster like sound every morning at about 630am. I'm worried she may be a he. Do hens ever make these noises? It's only a few times until I go give her some food. They are free range so they spend the rest of the day sitting around in the sun.
