One of my hens has crowed

A while ago I started to have a suspicion that one of the two young ‘hens’ I had bought was starting to look more and more like a cockerel at it grew. Eventually I was in no doubt. Yesterday it crowed for the first time.

I filmed it and you can see it by clicking the link below. Watch the head of the brown hen at the bottom left of the frame. It looks up as if to say,”What was that?
