    So as some of you know... I hatched out some babies last week thru the weekend. Well, I heard a strange noise coming from the brooder that was suspiciously like a squeeky crow. Well, I sat for a few minutes and watched everyone and one of them definatly crowed. I couldn't believe it. I've heard of them crowing young, but they aren't even a week old yet!!! It is one of the RIR crosses. At least he is letting me know ahead of time that he is definatly a roo!

    He must have a hormone overload. LOL But seriously, extra hormones could do that.
