Hello! This is about one of our chickens: Mayhem. When we bought Mayhem the chick was born first week of this March maybe. We were told she was a Red Sexlink female chick from a local feed store. Or pullet if you will. Not knowing much about chickens I take it at as trust and truth. A family friend of ours took a look at her and said she was a rooster, not a hen. I told him what the store said and he said they were wrong. I blew it off until...she crowed. Granted it is a pathetic, short, doesn't sound like a crow at all type crow...but still kinda sounds like it is. I read online and it said in small backyard flocks of all females that hens can indeed crow too under certain conditions. For example in small female flocks its said that a female with a strong personality will take over the role as 'rooster'. This could be in our case. Mayhem is indeed a stroooooooong personality and hen pecks at a smaller new chicks and even our Bantam who is roughly 2 months like her. What do you guys think? Please tell me this is a hen?
