This a.m., was listening to the usual rooster symphony, Ike, Suede, Dutch (Zane rarely ever crows early), this morning about 6 a.m., then I hear a different crow, sounds like coming from the layers coop, maybe behind it. I think, Dutch, was that you? What an odd crow for Dutch. Then, I hear it again. Suddenly, DH raises up in bed to listen. So, it wasn't my imagination. It's a young rooster, clear, full voice, but definitely not one of my adults. The only young rooster I have is a barred EE who is 9 weeks old. That was not a baby crow-it was an accomplished one. So, now, I'm wondering if someone dropped off a rooster on my property. Sounded like it was inside my fence, that close. Sure hope not, but I have no explanation other than a rooster wandered up to my place or was dumped. We'll be looking for him today. I sure hope that little 9 week old boy just has the best crow for a kid that I've ever heard and that there isn't some strange bird on my property that I have to deal with.
