    My 14 week old SLW crowed for the first time today. It sounded more like an antique car horn than a rooster. He made this pathetic sound three times in a row and all the girls ran back in the coop followed closely by him. I guess he scared himself.[​IMG]

    Yes, first crows are hilarious. I remember one time I ran out to see what was attacking my chickens, only to find a cockerel all excited at what he had done!! [​IMG] It truly is a pathetic sound at first!

    Antique car horn....perfect description! How long does it take them to get a "normal" cock-a-doodle-doo?
