My Tiny Brood of Backyard Chooks

chooks, hens or chickens?

Hilda Hen crowed loudly


I couldn’t believe what I was seeing or hearing yesterday morning. Hilda Hen crowed. Not just once but four times!

I read online that sometimes the dominant hen will crow if there is no rooster in the flock.
We have two roosters.
Hilda is not the dominant hen. In fact she is at the bottom of the pecking order.

It was so funny to watch.

  1. Wow! I’ve never heard of a hen crowing…interesting!

  2. Ain’t Hilda clever. I just hope your neighbours agree 😮

  3. I didn’t know chickens could have an identity crisis.

  4. Both of our Appenzellers crow and a generally noisy all the rest of the time, but today I heard the Vorwerk do it! It made me jump! And I thought hens were supposed to be quiet!
