    Roo, i'm almost sure of it! lol

    I have a rooster that "clucks", named him "Clucky" for that reason.
    He sounds just like a hen! lol He does crow though.
    I'm sure yours will learn to crow.

    Oh, and that "old horn" sound, may have been the start of a crow!
    My SpunkyRoo just started to crow, and sounds like that at times.

    Rooters will flare (puff out all the neck feathers) when they want to scare something off or as a confrontational measure (ready to fight). Fluffing out and shaking it of means nothing really. If the majority of the hackle feathers (neck feathers) are down but the ones directly on top of the head are fluffed out...then he is hacked out (scared). Hope that helps some.

    I've had rooster that clucked before. They are usually calling the hen over to them.

    Roosters can be quirky and darn right feminine. One of my breeder silkie roos often climbs into a nest box and clucks softly. I reached under him when collecting eggs one day, since I actually thought he was a broody hen, [​IMG] One of our showgirl cockerels has started doing the same thing..it may be a silkie thing though, since our D'uccle roos don't do anything like that.

    Quote:I have Game roos that do similar. [​IMG] Funny guys I think it depends on the personality.
