Okay here is the deal...my neighbor has a flock of BOs and a couple Arconas (sp?). They have a 2 1/2 yo BO Roo named Brewster....he is an awesome Roo. Well I put my kids in Eggtopia and Deville had just started trying to crow. Eggtopia is near my side fenceline (about 30 feet from it) and so is Brewster's flock on the other side. They are maybe 75 feet apart. This is Brewster and part of his flock: a close up of Brewster: If you notice the missing feathers down one side of his neck...he lost those doing battle with a small fox recently. Now, several times a day, Deville and Brewster are crow dueling. Deville crows and Brewster answers...they continue this for up to an hour each time. It is like Brewster is literally teaching Deville how to crow, he gets better each day. Deville is my 14 week old EE. This is Deville....my baby boy with one of his fav girls already, a Golden Buff: So what is the real story for this behavior.... are they announcing their presence, posturing or is it a teaching thing?
