    About four weeks back we realized our CiCi was a Cecil. Today we heard the oddest noise from the coop and over a few minute period there were four "beginners" crow! Oh how I wish it was something I could have recorded. Cecil has found his voice [​IMG].

    We are re-homing him (can't have roosters where we live) and were a bit worried that the planned move this weekend was too soon - but I guess not!

    I'm with you on that! When Shanti started crowing we were cracking up SO hard! I did manage to record it. He is about 3 months old now and has been crowing for about a month. I thought they didn't start crowing until they were about three or four months old, but there he was crowing. He's sounding better at it now, but it's still funny sounding. And he's getting louder with it too. lol [​IMG]

    My Wyandotte did not crow till 15 weeks & Bob, the Brahma still does not even crow at 17 weeks, however he does make a very loud noise like a goose honking - maybe that is his crow??

    I have (3) 16 week old roosters and none of them have crowed yet. Weird but, I think the other 3 Roosters a bit older crowing have made them not want to or something. [​IMG]
