Hello. This is my first time posting here so hopefully this is in the right place. I have 4 hens, or so I think, that are about 5 months old. One of them is quite a bit larger than the others and she isn’t very friendly, and we are wondering if she could be a he. Thanks!

Thank you all. Yes he ()is a blue laced wyandotte. I’m surprised I was able to get that picture! He doesn’t sit still for long being held.

At what point do they start to crow? He hasn’t done that yet. I guess I need to worry about babies too…..

Even if your boy wasn't a boy you could have had girls end up broody and wanting to hatch eggs. But not all breeds go broody so you might be off the hook there. Only time will tell.

It could be any time now. Listen for a bird sounding like it's being strangled, that would be him learning how to crow.
