    This a.m. Bianco TRIED to crow. It was very clearly a crowing attempt (up to this point all he's ever said was quiet "bok bok boks"!), but it was mostly just "GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK!" It was VERY loud, but not a complete cock-a-doodle-do, LOL. I encouraged him and he tried again w/ the same result. He'll get it eventually! He's 5 mos old. [​IMG]

    Oh, lord--there's no documentation! It was this a.m. in the half light while I was cleaning the coop. You'll just have to take my word for it!

    THAT'S IT!!! Not quite that long, but the same gutteral sound. It scared me to death the first time he did it!

    OMG. If I had a rooster crow like that. What am I saying I'd never have a rooster with a crow that LONG!

    OMG it is SO cute when they start doing that! I hatched my first egg in March of this year. He's an 8 month old Rhode Island Red now. It sounds so funny at first, I thought what in the world was that sound!? He started doing something similar, but then it developed into a partial crow... like an ER OOOO... and an ER ER OOOO... He finally got it down after a few weeks of trying. Though sometimes he still only partially crows. It always amuses me! [​IMG]
