    I have an ee roo that just started crowing at the ripe old age of 4 1/2 weeks old! Talk about getting an early start on things.

    I have an EE that's 4 months old, and he hardly ever crows. He'd rather chase the females and bite them! :eek:

    My lovely Jean-Robert (Cuckoo Marans) crows like a crazy dood. It doesn't sound like a crow, it sounds like a foghorn.

    He goes "cuh-CAAAAAAAHHHH-EEEK!" Like, what IS that?

    I was stunned to hear him crowing to say the least. I knew he was going to be a roo because his comb was turning dark pink and his feathers are just different from the pullets. He was destined to be a roo I guess LOL! His crow is quite unique and isnt like a regular first time crower either. Very suttle but definately a crow.

    My ee roo just started crowing too. At first, he would just do it once or twice very early in the morning, and about an hour ago he crowed really loud twice. I went to see what was going on and him and his ladies were at the glass sliding door looking in.
