    Is it possible for a 5 day old chick to start trying to crow? This little black australorp streaches out puffs up and lets out a squeel. Seems to be proud of himself. John

    Yes it is.
    Some of the little guys just want to get an early start.

    Yep, I had one crow at five days and one at seven days. Both were definitely boys.

    This raising chicks thing is a suprise every day. He has only crowed 3 times so far and there is nobody but me here to hear it. Wait till the wife gets home.[​IMG]
