    This morning as I was putting the younguns outside I heard a noise in the other chicken pen. I looked over there and sure enough I heard it again. Loverboy Luke crowed for the first time. I was so excited and he sounded good for his first crows. Have not heard him since, but he did it about 6 times this morning.[​IMG][​IMG]:woot You go Lukey. [​IMG][​IMG]:weee:ya

    [​IMG] I know how you feel. My "Floyd" crowed for the first time last week. [​IMG] [​IMG] He's gotten a lot better since. Yesterday I got a surprise crow [​IMG] from "Silver" oops. I made a mistake and one of my girls is a rooster also. At least it's a non-gender specific name. LOL Just hope I don't make that mistake too often.
