    Ive got a "huge" ( and i mean HUGE) Blonde buff orpington roo thats about 1 year old and he crows like he's been smoking for 30 years! He does good on the beginning notes but towards the end, he starts to crackle. [​IMG] Sounds like he needs a cough drop! He's healthy as a horse and just had a check up and the vet had no idea about it. i don't know if this is common with this breed or if theres something wrong, or if he just never learned to crow right. The RIR roo i have does the best crow i've ever heard and the buff try's to out do him and he comes out not on the best end of it. Any advise or am i stuck with listening to him like that. (not that it matters but it would be nice to help him if i can)

    I can't see where he needs help. We have a Buff Orph Roo as well, he's finally up to 5 syllables. I've never heard two roos sound alike, so I'd call him normal.

    yeah, i was just asking. He's a good roo and has no problems. I guess i just think it's weird that he can't get it right [​IMG]

    Maybe he's a smoker - did you check the coop for hidden cigarettes?
