    I have a three month old EE cockerel and has made odd noises from any chicken/chick I've heard. Of course he's my first roo so I wouldn't know. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes they are practicing their crowing. Mine is so cute. He cant crow worth a bean. But he tries really hard.

    Does it sound like a somewhat deep gobbling sound?

    I like the ones that sound like a chicken caught up in a rusty blender.. [​IMG]

    My young cockerel that started crowing yesterday sounds like a cat hacking up a hairball.

    His older brother will be 5 months old soon. He still doesn't have it right. [​IMG]
