    Gabby is definitely her own bird...and walks to her own tune. She has startled me a few morning doing outside of the bedroom window. I come running thinking someone got hurt and find her doing this! haha! [​IMG]

    Only pay attention to the first half..the second half is me following her to see if she crows again, with no luck. Pretty boring. [​IMG]

    She thinks she wants to crow, but seems to only have the Rrrrrr part down of the Rr-Rr-Rr-Rr-Rrrrrrrrr. [​IMG] She flies out of the run most mornings, wanders around happily by herself and, on occasion, crows. I guess the roo is boss of all that is in the run, she is boss of all that is NOT in the run!

    My BSL Harriet crows on occasion. She started after I got roosters - strange. It's kind of hoarse and not too loud, but it's a definite crow.
