    Our OE Bantam that was hatching 3 Ameracauna eggs has 1 baby (1day old) and 2 unhatched eggs (one is jiggling!) She has abandoned the eggs, is being a VERY good Momma to her only Chick, and is...well...
    SHE'S CROWING!!! Yep-- full-fledged cock-a-doodle-dooing! she's done it 6x already today (it is 1:00pm here)

    What The heck is THAT!?

    Should I worry???

    I can't keep her in the house if she keeps doing THAT!!

    She's been indoors since November 29th... hatched 3 batches... (December, February & today)
    We were gonna take the babies (?) from her Monday when we get a few more from TSC and reintroduce her to the flock...

    ?????

    Oh goodness! I have no idea - from THIS end it's funny, but from THAT end I bet it's not. I'm sorry, I can not help you at all, but I think you should get that on video!
