    Oh, a month or so ago, I posted pics of my chickens. We ALL assumed all but one were hens. Today I notice one crowing hoarsely. I notice another making that gagging gesture I talked about in other posts. And then.......it CROWED. LOL. Kinda explains why I wasn't getting as many eggs as I "thought" I should be. So, husband is talking separate pens and finishing them for Christmas time.

    Somebopdy told me that a dominant hen can crow too, so we will see if they lay eggs while they are separate, loll.
