Well, our ignorance in identifying male and female Showgirl chickens really showed up this past couple weeks. We kept hearing a chicken trying to crow but couldn't figure out which one it was. We thought maybe a hen had learned to crow! But in the last couple of weeks, one of our Showgirls (the original one) started looking a bit rooish. Then today, there he was crowing in full glory. Fortunately the gal we got them from is wonderful to work with and is looking around for another hen so we can just swap the older roo (the one we had traded for) with that. Part of the learning curve I suppose! Doh!
