    I have to tell someone, my rooster crowed for the first time today YAY!!! At first I didn't know what in the world that strange noise was, and the other chics ran into the house like they were scared. Then it kept happening and I finally figured out after the 3rd time, that he was trying to crow. How funny!

    My big boy was 9 weeks when he started using his voice. He doesn't do it until around 9:30am, maybe he's confused about when to do it. Or he can just keep it at 9:30 I really don't mind.

    Is he a Delaware? He's a handsome little fella! Love that BR to the right of him. She's so pretty!

    He is a Delaware and that BR I was told was a Dominique but then someone said the legs should be yellow and hers are olive, maybe she's a mix. But I love her either way.
