    Its my turn! I have waited and waited and still waited more, until I thought maybe our Roo was ga......um, confused.[​IMG]

    But alas! Today at the crack of dawn...................we had crowing! Real honest to goodness crowing! (Can a person be this excited about this event?![​IMG])

    And this afternoon, more crowing! He must have just found his voice. There is something about this sound, I can't explain it, but somehow our farm just SOUNDS more authenic, like a real barnyard [​IMG]

    "Randy" is a Silver Lace Wyandotte, 14.5 weeks old.

    Thanks for letting me share!

    Okay, I'm jealous. I have a 15 wk old BO that won't even think about crowing. I have a Buff Rock that is at least 6 months old and no crowing. The BR better start doing something, crow or lay, and quick he will be gumbo. His name is gumbo. [​IMG]

    I wish I loved that sound. I still miss my Edward, who I gave away because of his enthusiastic singing.

    I totally understand what you are saying!! I have 5 or more adult roos and I think only a few crow. I have a couple young ones that are learning and man do they sound funny. I keep thinking someone has a frog in its throat. Texas, when I name an animal with a food name that is what it becomes.. Ham and Bacon were the last 2 pigs we had. Needless to say when we got ba ba the sheep I would not let my hubby name her lambchops...lol I am not going to eat my kids sheep, actually I would love to find her a friend. Jenn

    I just said to DH late this afternoon that I thought that Moe our OEG roo must be G*Y because he is about 18 wks old, eats oyster shell and has yet to crow, maybe he's gender confused.

    LOL in a few weeks you will probably post that he won't stop! I think a barred rock has a very impressive booming crow.

    Hey, if you guys want early crowing, get some Mille Fleur D'Uccles.

    My roos started crowing at 8 weeks! [​IMG]

    I thought my Barred Rock, Hawkeye, had a nice full crow, till my Blue Orpington came into his own. That is an unusual, deep, baritone wolf-howl of a crow. It's wild. My Ameraucana sounds more like a game rooster.
