Rooster stopped crowing and now just squeaks??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm new to raising chickens.  I have a 18 week old rooster that crowed a lot but today he hasn't crowed but squeaks instead.  I can't see any other symptoms.  Any suggestions?

I tried to attach a video, hope you can view it.  Thanks for any help. Sara

I'm far from an expert, but maybe he has a throat infection or some kind of embolism that is preventing him from using his crowing apparatus effectively? Bet your neighbours are happy either way! big_smile.png

The video says that it is private. Maybe your rooster is getting ready to crow, and is just figuring it out.
