CROWING AT 1 WEEK .........***VIDEO ADDED***

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by Three Cedars Silkies, Aug 1, 2008.

  1. I have a black frizzle cochin baby that is one week old. I came in this morning to take care of them, saying good morning, etc. This particular baby started making this squeaky sound and when I turned around to look at it...he had his head up in the air...like a roo when they crow. He didn't do it just once...over and over again...always with his head in a very roo like position while making this squeaky sound.

    Anyone else ever seen/heard this??

  2. Anyone have any ideas? I called my daughter to tell her about it and she said, "Oh...yeah!! I meant to ask you about it when I was there a couple of days ago. I heard it and turned around to look and it looked like a miniature roo sticking it's head up in the air"

    yes being that it is a cochin. My bantam cochins have done this. But I wouldnt say HE yet!!!! [​IMG] I have had pullet cochins crow at this age too. The only other breed I have heard crow at 2 weeks were Seramas.
