    I have 12 10 week old chicks(2 barred rocks and 10 silkies) i know for sure I barred rock and 1 silkie (huge walnut comb and waddles and is a bully hackle feathers will puff out )... I have two thet are crowing but they won't let me see them do it... everytime I walk away they crow and they refuse to do it when I am watching... I will assume its the two I know are roos...

    What little brats~LOL I have a pen of 4-5 month olds (Welsummers, BCM & 1 White Empordanesa). I know there are several roos in the bunch. None are trying to crow yet though. I bet it will sound like a bucket of rusty hinges when they do [​IMG]

    Quote:My roos sounded like a baby crying mmmmooooomm. [​IMG] I swear my neighbors thought that I was throwing my son outside every morning.

    As soon as I heard there noise I would run outside to see who was doing it. It took me almost a week to figure out which chicken was doing it because they would stop as soon as I got close to the run. Then the other roo started. [​IMG]
