    Well I thought I had gotten rid of all my roosters, Well as I was leaving home this morning I heard this awful sound coming from the chicken coop....so I figured a cat found a way in. Well I go back there and their all there, and then I see this chick stretch out its neck and try to crow. Their bout 8 weeks old....guess ima keep this one and have chicks later on.

    Mine are all trying to crow, and it is hilarious. It sounds like nothing else, and you can't help but laugh. It is even funnier to see the confused looks of all the hens to the funny sounds coming from the roos. Right now, with my young roo fleet of 20 birds, only two have the cock a doodle doo down, so there is a lot more misfires then crows, lol
