    This morning I heard a rather odd noise coming from the barn/coop. Sort of an Ur-ur-urrrrrh noise. It repeated itself a couple more times.

    It wasn't particularly loud, but loud enough for me to hear it in the bedroom. I think my chicks are finally growing up.[​IMG]

    sounds like you have at least one rooster lol. Never forget my first time hearing a new crow. I was sitting at the computer late one evening when I heard something coming from my spare bedroom where I had the chicks brooding. Here a 5 week old silkie was just starting to crow It did finally get DH off his duff to finish the coop thou lol

    It can sometimes take a long time for them to get it right.

    I have a 10 month old brahma who still makes an awful noise. But he is practicing to try to get it right....and practicing and practicing and practicing,

    My silkie rooster just started crowing a few days ago. It's so funny. He goes ruuuu ruuuu..............then a few seconds later a pitiful little ru like he ran out of breath.

    I was so thrilled when my cockerels started crowing. I don't know how that sound could bother anyone.

    Two of my roosters sound as if they are clearing their throats for the past few weeks. While one has a strong crow each morning. It would be nice if the two wouldn't have a full crow so I could keep them within the city limits. Do all roosters get past the throat clearing stage and have a real crow? What are they odds of them not crowing?
