My hen crows

Postby millstreaminn » Mon Jun 09, 2014 8:37 am

I've had chickens for 30 years and so I know the difference between a rooster and a hen. I am slowly getting out of the chicken business by letting the hens die of old age. I was down to 2 chickens and lost one about a month ago, leaving me with one hen that free ranges. Yesterday I was out at 7am and heard what sounded like a young rooster crowing. I was pizzed because I thought someone dropped off a young one for me. Anyhow, went out to the cow shed and my hen was up in the rafters crowing. I was gonna catch her and sell her to a circus :lol: 'till I read that other people have had the same thing happen. Oh well. I'll just have to wait for one of my other animals to do something equally amazing so I can get rich! :cboy:

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others. It is the same when you are stupid.

The best method of stopping a hen from crowing is a pot of dumplings.

That's funny! She is crowing to call in a mate. Get that chicken a friend! :D
She has to be the hen AND the rooster!

It is kind of like the cat I have that thinks he's a dog.
And my goat that thinks she's a horse.

Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but, rather, a manner of traveling!

I have one myself and its not as rare as you might think especially if she has no access to a rooster and its always the dominant hen of the yard.

I thought this was going to be about someone's wife.
