    I have two six week olds and one four week old in the house. This morning, I heard some awful sound... I thought something was dying in the attic! But, nope, it was just six week old Drumstick crowing his little heart out! It's too cold to throw them outside, so I don't know if I should laugh or cry! [​IMG]

    maybe a mixture of both laugh/cry. I have the same problem because the coop is half built. I have to deal with the crowing for now.

    Yep, it's just way too funny to hear the young ones thinking they are big stuff. They try hard and will improve with every go at it! [​IMG]

    My Jerry sounded like the meeting of a rubber duckie and a cement mixer when he first started.

    So, my new favorite thing is to play clips of roosters crowing on YouTube. That really gets Drumstick going! [​IMG]

    He looks alot like that Cochin/Silkie x Barred Rock cockerel that was the brother to the PoufyHead Sisters. Just like a Barred Rock, but with his cute little pouf.

    Quote:This is one of the little guys I got from Animal123Animal when my little Noodle was abandoned by Gwen. I thought he said this one was silkie x turken. I know he didn't say BR. I emailed him to find out exactly what Drumstick is but haven't heard back yet.
    All I know is Drumstick is HUGE and he loves to be vocal!

    He is quite a chunky boy! Remember mine here? This one doesn't have the mass that your Drumstick does, though!
