    Hi all -

    A friend sent this to me on FaceBook:

    http://www.snotr.com/video/3698

    And if you click on the word "nephew" above the video, they have another one that makes the same sound.

    Is THAT crowing?

    Is that a breed? Or is that a term used for roos that have a habbit of crowing like this?

    HEY! Now THERE'S an idea!!! LOL!

    No seriously - I actually LIKE my neighbors, so this video scared me there for a minute... Thought maybe it was a spontaneous thing and that any of my cockerels could grow up to do this! Thank goodness its a breed!
