    My six month old Silver Spangled Hamburg crows all day long. Is that normal?

    [​IMG] Our cockerel will respond to lots of noises, a chainsaw, tractor, wild crows cawing, neighbors dog barking, etc... Sometimes even stuff we can't hear. I barely heard another rooster crowing far off in the distance one day, and mine started crowing back. His hearing seems good enough to pick up on that and respond even when I can't hear it. It's really just him claiming his territory and hens, and some just seem to be a lot more vocal than others.
