We've been living in denial about our 'butch hen' but this morning he started to convince us & unfortunately the neighbors that he's a Roo. We should have known when the kids named 'her' "Rocky". We have 6 birds all together & they are 4 months old & no one is laying yet. I think we have to get rid of the roo..... we're bummed. so i just want to be absolutely sure before we make the call.... Is there any way for a hen to be making random early morning crowing noises like a rooster - i know, long shot. If "Rocky" is indeed a roo, could he have done any fertilizing of our hens already, even if they haven't started to lay.... and finally, any suggestions on how to transport a rooster back to the feed store??? box? Thanks!
