    Continuation of my new obsession- trying to ascertain my chicken's gender... Here's the link to youtube audio...17 seconds in there's a noise. Crow or egg song?
    Thanks in advance!

    OH THAT IS SOOOO NOT AN EGG SONG!
    Egg song sounds like "buck- buck- buck- BUGAWK!"
    You have a proud young cockerel there.

    Welcome to BYC.

    Absolutely a crow. Youngsters' attempts are usually rather funny sounding. But it will get better!

    Yes this is what I was afraid of...he was supposed to be a she! He is lovely and is part of the family. Now we have to get rid of him. [​IMG]
    Thanks for your help.

    Omg!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is sooooooo funny! Sounds just like my "Thelma" when she/he was first learning to crow, she's/he's a expert now. He's just 4 months old... Such a sweet sound in the mornings & evenings. [​IMG]

    Maybe his crow will stay short and sweet like it is now. How annoying can that be... I think it's cute [​IMG]
