does a honk like a goose count for an attempt at crowing?
Maybe. It's either crowing or squawking, probably.
Sometimes! My bigger breed roos sometimes honk when first try to crow. Funny to see them so startled by the bizarre noises they make.
Oh no! I have a barred rock that started to honk like a goose. I hope it's a she....we already have one surprise rooster! I think she's a hen, tho. She honks when she gets a treat and is running away from the others, trying to play keep away.
I have 3 girls that honk like geese. it's too funny. my roos always sound like an ahooga horn like on old cars. lol it's too funny
I have a couple girls who make a short, single honk sound every now and then. Always makes me look, because it sounds so "un-chicken-like." It's a very, very short sound, even shorter than a regular "bok."
I had a Buff Orp pullet that honked like a goose, especially when it was hot out.
A roosters first crow, doesn't sound like honking. (at least not the ones I've had) The closest I can come to describing it is someone playing the trombone REALLY, REALLY, REALLY badly.
He he! I remember one of mine, in particular, actually sounded like a dying cow when he first started to "crow".
When mine started, I wondered if the Neighbors I Don't Like had finally HAD IT with the chihuahua they keep ON A CHAIN, and were finally strangling it. Or it was strangling itself on that chain.....
And then Carl did it in front of me and I said, "Oh, Carl! You'll have to do better than THAT!" (It was so cute.)
my Buff Orp has honked since she was small. she's the only one who does it.
