    I have a Rooster that has started to make gobbling sounds...he still crows but every so often he sounds like a turkey... is this normal? it really is disconcerting to hear him...

    Are you sure it just isn't his call to the girls that he has found a treat? I know my boys sound like a gurgly gobble when they find something (or want the girls to think they found something to get them away from me). They do have a language of their own if you listen closely. The one I hate to hear is the call for the flock to hide from a flying predator, and it isn't because it is irritating, just don't want them to get snatched up.
