    It hasn't made any noise... But after I made that crowing noise it started acting like it was. Trying to crow.... The mouth was completely open ... I wanna know if that's a noemal behavior, for the to act like the a crowing or whatever its doing or If it is sick?

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] It sounds like your chick may have been trying to mimic you.
