Some of you may remember our chicken experiment where we crossed our Plymouth Rock rooster with an Ameraucana hen.
The Beneficial Bee: The Chicken Experiment
We have been waiting patiently for our hen Clumsia (another pet named by Oliver) to start laying eggs. Clumsia is the offspring of a chicken breed who lays brown eggs with a breed that lays blue. I was hoping for some sort of amazing blue spotted brown egg. Here she is-our beautiful hen.
Recently things started getting interesting. Clumsia began trying to mate with the other hens. Still deep in denial, Glenn and I agreed that we were thrilled to have a gay hen.
My dream of cool eggs faded more every day as Clumsia began acting like a male. Glenn still held out hope that she was a female and we had daily discussions comparing her female attributes to her male features. Could it be that we had a transgender chicken?
Then we heard it. And finally we had our answer. Below you can see a picture of our rooster Clumsia crowing.
