I have 3 BR hens, a blue cochin hen, and a BR rooster, all around 3 1/2 months old, and I have a couple of questions. 1. My rooster started crowing about 3 weeks ago, and he sounded great when he first started. But, he loves to crow and he crows atleast 20+ times an hour. Is this normal, or is this something that he just likes when he first learns to crow and he will calm down eventually? Also, his crow has gotten worse in the past week, almost like he has a hoarse voice, is this possible? 2. In the bottom of the coop, they have eaten all of the grass and it has turned into dirt. They don't have a run with grass right now (working on it), so they have had to stay in the coop. They spend most of the time downstairs in the little dirt section because it has their food and water. When they poo, it seems like it just gets stepped on and become part of the dirt. Do I need to rake the top layer of dirt out whenever I clean the coop to make it fresh? And also, can this hurt the chickens if they are walking in a little bit of poo? Thanks in advance!
