Finally it only took him almost 11 weeks to find his voice. But the last 2 mornings now when I go out and open the coop for the day he crows to me. Its still that teenage squeaky voice but he is trying. Hard to believe a grown man would be so excited about hearing a rooster crow. I am in the group that loves hearing a rooster crow, always have, even before I owned my own. On a side note I didn't realize how many people in my area have roosters. The other morning when I got home from work at 6 am, I let the birds out for the day. I was just sitting there watching them when just a few houses down I heard a rooster crow, then behind me I heard another rooster crow. It was like they were having a contest. Then all of the sudden I hear this squeaky, trying super hard crow, come from my run. I guess all it took was for the neighbors to get him started. I do have a question. Why does a rooster's crow carry so far?
