Growling Rooster

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My rooster has been making some strange growling sounds lately.  He does this at any time, no matter what he's doing.  Sometime he seems to do it if something upsets him .  It almost sounds like a loud burb.  Is this normal? What does it mean when he does this?

I read where roosters have different noises based on the type of predator.  Sometimes mine do the quick BAWK! at the sign of a predator (usually the aerial kind), other times it's the BAWK followed by the growl.  Maybe the growl is just a reminder to the hens to be very careful.  idunno

So this is normal behavior then.  It sounds so funny.  Sometime it does sound like someone talking.
