    Yesterday morning i woke to a horrible noise! It sounded as though one of my chickens was dieing. Or like, you know when you squeez one of those rubber chickens? Anyways, it was a horrible noise, and it scared the poop out of me! I ran over to check what was wrong, but couldnt find anything, so i left it.

    This morning i heard it again, so again i ran into the room scared poop-less. I waited for a moment and it hapopened again.. and again... i stood there watching for a while, only to realise that Dot was CROWING

    LOL!! I awoke to a sound like a woman being strangled, INSIDE my house the other morning. Turned out to be my 8 week old Black Copper Marans cockerel starting to crow! Me and the dogs had to listen for it again before we believed it! [​IMG] Now the older roo outside, is NOT happy at all!! [​IMG]

    The first crows are pretty darned pitiful, aint they [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've got 8 Roos, and 5 of them crow. One is beautiful, one has a more musical tone, and the other 3, well, lets just say they're developing [​IMG] Sounds like a cross between a dieing cat, a screech owl and a screaming woman [​IMG]

    I have some 3-week-old bantam Cochins that are starting to cock-fight in the brooder. I don't know which one did it, but I heard a sort of giggly "skweeeee" from that direction this morning. Made me do a little giggling of my own! [​IMG]

    When my Brahmas first started to crow I thought my husband was having difficulty starting the car......
