    My roo, Samson, started crowing just a few days ago. Poor thing sounds sick, but it's so cute to hear him try anyway.
  2. i have a 9-week-old Silkie Mille Fleur mix that has just started crowing. Very quiet, like a creaky door, just three times at 8am each morning. i hope it stays that way.

    Aren't they cute when they first start?

    I have quite a few roos who are now about 3 months old and are crowing.
    Polish has been crowing for about 3 weeks,
    the banty cochin about 2 weeks,
    the golden sebright about 1 week,
    I heard a japanese about 1 week ago but not since,
    and I heard the BR a couple days ago.

    They all have their own unique sound.
    I love to hear them even though they sound horrible.

    This guy was a bit late. He's a cochin roo who is around 5 months old and just started to crow. I'm not sure why he waited so long, but I guess he's just special. [​IMG]
