Our chickens are about 13 weeks old, and we've been watching them to see if there were any roosters that were accidentally snuck into the batch of hens that we bought. So far, no clues as to what's what in that department. But, a few days ago, while sitting on the patio with my coffee, the girls were clucking around me on the grass, looking for tasty treats, and all of a sudden I heard "Honk!" Very near me. I looked around, but all I saw were my girls. Later that day, I heard it again, and could have sworn that there was a goose in the hen house. We have NO geese. Went to look, and there sat 3 of the girls, looking at me very innocently. Then that evening, while putting them up for the night I heard the sound again, "Honk!" right next to me. There was one of my girls, one that has always looked a little bigger than the others, and whose coloring is a bit different. RIR, but with some black mixed into the wing feathers. Could this be a rooster trying to figure out how to crow? Or just a hen with allergies?
