7 week old silkie... crowing!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have asked about the gender of my silkies several times as they have grown, mainly because some of them have really large red combs, and I keep being met with the answer that it is too early to tell lol.  This morning, I thought I heard something weird outside, so I went out and low and behold... one of my silkie roos was crowing!! They are only 7 weeks old!!  I was not able to get a super good video of it, but still... IT'S SUCH A CUTE LITTLE CROW!!

 

There are two other little silkies with large combs like this guy, but they have yet to crow.  What is the earliest you have had one crow??  I read someone had one crowing at 4.5 weeks, that is so crazy!

Get out! That is too funny.

 

That roo has some pretty heavy duty testosterone.

I kept hearing it from far away and I was like what the heck sounds like a turkey?! Today he actually did it right as I was getting them out for the day. I guess he is trying to one up my only other rooster that Crows. His little crow is just so adorable!

Yeah, those first crows are funny......then you go 'Darnnit'!

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
