    Yesterday, I was showing some of my friends, one of my pen of Quails. All of a sudden, One of them crowed!!![​IMG]

    They are only 24 Days Old!!! I don't believe I've ever heard one crow at that young Age??? They won't be 4 weeks old until this Saturday Sept. 24 !!

    How cute! I guess it figured if you were going to show them off , then it would give you something great to show. [​IMG]

    What kind of quail?

    My Coturnix are 1 month now, and they are so funny! I love what I call their growl when I put my hand in the cage and they want fed. Then there's the cricket sounds they make. That means one escaped the brooder. lol...

    I love that.... MY also makes a meow sound too. When I forgot to feed them the night before, I Walk out and all I hear is this meow sound. and than when I put my hand in there to grab the dish, they do the growl. One actually pecks my hand

    I'm having the same things happen with my chicks too. I can't stand it. I understand it to be their "trouble" call so I'm constantly running upstairs to their room to see what's going on and who's in trouble.

    I'm assuming it's the little roos.

    i have chicks in the brooder that hatched over the weekend. There's a couple in there that are already standing tall and attempting to crow ...sounds more like squeaking but you can tell they're working up to the real thing...LOL
