I know I originally said I didn't want a rooster because of the noise, but I was starting to wonder if Edward was ever going to make any sound at all! Then yesterday, two days shy of his 15 week birthday, out came a very respectable crow! It was lovely! I'm so glad you guys talked me into keeping him "as is". He has been a wonderful addition to the flock. Even at his young age, his devotion to his duty of protecting the girls is admirable. He never goes into the coop at night until everyone else is in, and as soon as he hears one of his girls in distress, he's right there to save the day! I love that little guy!
