    Yesterday my son and I were working outside and we started to hear this odd noise coming from the upper level of the garage. That is where the chicklets are house for now. It sounded like a rooster trying to crow. I know that 2 of our silver Sebrights are roos but they are pretty young (6 weeks or so) but they were the only option. The White Leghorns are 4 to 5 weeks old.

    Anyhow. I went upstairs and after a minute or so one of the little SS roos sticks his head out and lets out a raspy little crow. It was adorable. Then the other roo who is a bit bigger lets out a crow as well. Darling birds.

    The little SS roo got his name too. Since he is littler than the big one we started calling him little roo. Which has been altered to Laru.
