We brought in a OE Bantam hen that had gone broody, and let her hatch an egg (tho she immediately attacked the chick!) Even after the eggs/chick were removed-- she stayed broody-- several times a day pitching a hissy-fit when she "discovered" that her eggs were missing (again)... last 3 days, she's getting better, eating and walking around more-- then.... SHE STARTED CROWING!! She did it 3x yesterday when no one else was home-- so they all thought I was daffy... until today, hubby heard her do it twice!! Besides being hilarious... I am also concerned... Only read about crowing hens in the absence of Roo's....??? Anyone else had this?? Will she stop once we reintroduce her to the flock?? Do you think she'll continue if we keep her as an indoor pet?? (We're afraid that the others won't accept her back-- and she's SO tiny.....) Thanks folks!!! Cock-a doodle!!!!
