    Hello, I will be updating a lot about what's going on with crow...

    Crow is an americauna/easter egger- Rooster.. He is now 6months and I have only seen him mate once, He was an issue for us because he crowed a lot. We got the no-crow-collar, nope it didn't work[​IMG] we decided to try a zip-tie it works!!! He can now stay at our house because he doesn't crow very loud.. We kept him in with our ducks for about 3 months, because we wanted them too breed, but we figured out that he really wasn't happy. Doing more research I decided that It might be safe for him to join our other flock of 17 hens, we put him in with them today and everything is fine. Fights occurred a little bit between him and the hens to establish the 'pecking order' I think they still are trying to work it out. Right now he is attached with his hen that he has been raised with, And isn't interacting with the rest of the flock.. You have to give him some credit he really hasn't been able to be the Rooster I know that he can be, since he stayed with his female in the duck coop!! He can protect them, and everything he does.. But why isn't he interacting with them very much[​IMG]?? He only stays with his female and goes wherever she goes…

    Here is Crow by himself

    And here is crow with his Mate She is an Americauna

    He is such a good boy, I would hate too see something happen to him!

    Crow is a handsome rooster. I think he will adjust to the flock soon.

    I'm glad I live far enough away from neighbors, because I like to hear my roosters crow.

    Thanks guys...

    UPDATE!!

    Crow is now breeding with one single hen constantly, I have seen him breed with her 3 times already, I think that he adjusting very nicely. I wonder why he doesn't mate with his hen that he follows forever in a day. (I will post pics later).. We let him free-range today, but tomorrow is no free ranging..

    I wil post more tomorrow, Night-Night

    I sure would like to hear about him. I have 4 roosters: one very v tiny banty, 1 medium size banty and 2 large roosters. They crow all the time and I love to hear it. It's sad that Crow has to be quiet.

    Well, If crow was loud, he'd have to go to a different friend and loose his flock.. I think he is happy to not have his voice then to be culled, or taken away

    This is the hens favorite place to diet bathe! For in the morning they get the sun on them and its just right!
