I had the unfortunate experience of having my rooster that we raised from a hatchling die. It was an unexpected death. He just one day got weak and the next day passed. He was only 2 yrs old. However within a week of him passing, one of our 6 yr old Orpington/Black Polish hens started crowing. I keep reading this is uncommon and she doesn't do it every day.. Is this something that will continue for a long time? Will she turn into a full blown Rooster? Is the sudden absence of the rooster that caused this? If anyone has anything on this I am all ears, or eyes rather.
