    Okay.....so it is half a crow......one of my 18 week old BLRW roos has found his man voice!

    Of course it set my dogs into a barking frenzy and I haven't been able to shut them up!

    LOL. My BR bantam started crowing at about 8 weeks. It sounds more like one of the puppy's squeak toys than a crow. He's 13 weeks now and hasn't improved any. [​IMG]

    One of my bantams started crowing at five weeks. Sounds like a rusty door hinge!

    My two Cream Brabanter roos just started crowing yesterday! I noticed they were actually practicing together--taking turns. So I chimed in with my fake crowing, and they would crow back! Too funny! Oh, but it's more like a croak than a crow right now....they definitely need more practice! [​IMG]

    I heard my boys crow the first time last week, the first was a little rusty but the next day it was a nice big one. 8 wks old but I never would have known if they started earlier because they only crow at 5 am [​IMG] I love hearing them [​IMG]

    My 8 week old Bantam Lavender Ameraucana started crowing this week. He sounds like a woman screaming. Aaaaaaaaach.

    I am kind of looking forward to the first time my favorite roo crows. But I know I'll probably be wishing he would shut up soon after he gets the hang of it. When the other 3 start they will just be punching their ticket to freezer camp.... setting reservations anyway.
