Last September I bought some young chickens to go with the five I already had.
In turn two turned out to be Cockerels so they had to go and everything was fine ... until now!
Suddenly we have some crowing coming from the henhouse! These new birds are approximately eights/nine months old and one has picked up a Cockerel trait. None of them have spurs, the tail feathers appear to have rounded ends and none of them strut around like a Cockerel. I`ve read that chickens (amongst other birds can have a false sex change)
My question is will it stop crowing in time or is this a permanent thing cause if it is then it`s another that will have to go.
