    It’s not too unusual for chickens without a rooster (maybe 1/10000) to go through phase where they will transition to looking and sounding like a rooster but they will never become a male fully. It sometimes happens even if there is a rooster if their ovary is damaged and their hormones get a bit unbalanced.

      That’s interesting ecudc.
      Strangely , we have just had an egg which had a lot of fresh blood in it. Not a chick as there is no cockerel, but it does make me wonder after what you said about damaged ovaries whether or not that could be one of her eggs.
      Not had one before so I hope it’s a one off.
      I certainly don’t want to give eggs away to people for them to be confronted with a really off putting egg . Yuck is an understatement
