    Out of the 8 babies abandoned on my step Dec 29, Blue has emerged as my favorite. He sees himself as my other spoiled son. He can't crow worth a darn but he sure tries! He helps the duck sit her eggs, he protects the younger ducks from the Mallard Drake, he makes sure his best girl-friends Charlotte and Penny don't get run out of the food by the other hens. Here a few pics of him:
    Doing his darndest to crow standing on one leg.

    One of the others telling him to be quiet!

    REAALLLYYYYY trying to crow, you had to hear to understand but the look on his face also lets you know how hard he was trying.

    On one leg again.

    This is Blue in front of Whitey's nest, he's waiting for her to leave so he and Flat Top McNuggets and Cogburn can sit on her nest!

    This is his best bud Flat Top McNuggets.

    And this is Cogburn, he keeps Blue and Flat Top in line.

    Quote:He is definitely determined! He sounds like he's garggling with acid,,, the others tend to bite him when he crows, but he still tries!

    It's funny to watch them crow when they are young especially so. I watched a silkie I hatched in January fall over trying to crow he put so much effort into it...lol

    Great pics !!!
