    I don't know that breed, but I don't see any hackle feathers or saddle feathers. Perhaps a better picture from the side view. A hen will crow [​IMG]

    CC - do you have any updated pictures of the questionable girls?


    Sometimes hens do crow. I have a D'Uccle who crows from time to time - she lays eggs and goes broody - but also like to tell the boys they are not as great as they think.

    One of my RIR hens is so loud you would swear she was a roo-if she hadn't been giving me eggs for the last year!

    Hens for sure. Maybe your hen was crowing because you don't have a roo. It definitely happens though. Sure makes ya go [​IMG] though. [​IMG]
