    I have three Modern Game baby chicks, now 3 weeks old. They are the coolest little chicks, very tame and friendly. One of them already has a pretty prominent comb and is developing what looks like wattles? It might be a cockerel and we can't keep roosters in our city backyard. But I've heard the Modern Game is a pretty quiet bird.

    So do MG roosters actually make a lot of noise? (I hope not so that we could keep this little guy)

    We attended a poultry show back in March. The big guys (large fowl) were all just kinda hanging out, chillin' barely a crow from any of them. The modern game roos were crowing non-stop. [​IMG]

    Same here, all the modern games at the show we went to were crowing their heads off.

    Great... I guess we'll have to find him a new home once he starts making noise... he's just so darned cute I'd like to keep him.
