    I posted photos of a couple of chicks I thought were Roos on the breed section and I heard them making this same sound that I found on youtube. I was told they were Roos from the posting so what is this sound they make. Here is the link I found that sounds like them.

    NO. Roos don't do that. That hen is either upset, or she just laid an egg.

    My roo does, and he is a roo, but he sings the egg song and crows. [​IMG]

    I have hens that do that occasionally, I thought my roo did it a couple of times too?[​IMG] I thought it was just normal chicken talk.[​IMG]

    So Roos do this also. I wanted to make sure because someone is on their way to pick them up so I didn't want to send a hen.
