When is a Hen a Rooster?
That is the question. Yesterday I was walking past my hen Cedar when she threw her head back and let out a crow. Not the crow of a hen that's laid an egg but a throw back your head and crow....like a rooster.
She then proceeded to crow a few more times for good measure.
I stared at her. Was this Cedar or a rooster posing as my hen Cedar?
I went on with my day and never gave it another thought until this morning when I went out to open up the coop . As I approached the door, there it was again.
Crowing. Morning crowing?
Who are you and what have you done with Cedar?
I have looked long and hard at this bird and still can't figure out if it is Cedar or someone's cast-off rooster. And if it is, where is my hen Cedar?
