    It sounds weird, but my cochin rooster doesn't go cockadoodledoo, more like ranaranaroo... Also, he doesn't extend his neck.

    Hinky Toes has a sort of failing "cock-a -doodle-doo" It's pathetic and funny at the same time. "Squirt", our other wyandotte rooster, has a hearty voice.

    My Thor has the classic cockledoodledoo. Zeus sounds asthmatic. There's the cockledoodle followed by a big wheeze.

    My buff silkie roo starts off good, but ends up "baaaa"ing like a sheep. He has always done this and he is perfectly healthy, just silly I guess.

    This is one of my best first memories:

    We were just beginning to have serious questions about the one chicken who didn't look like the others, when one morning around 5:30 we heard "wuuhhhh-errr-uuuhhh".

    It took us a couple days to realize that this was the early effort of a bona fide rooster. He has since become only slightly more respectable with "errr-er-ERRRR". Neck extension is what he does really well. He arches his neck, reaches forward, fluffs his ruff and goes for it. Higher elevations are his preferred locations for vocalizing.

    Maybe he needs a mentor?[​IMG]
