One of my EE chicks made the most horrible noise! It sounded sort of like a rusty door hinge or an old man clearing his throat! What made me think he was crowing instead of choking on something was that he had his head held up very high and his neck all stretched out. It sure looked more like a crow than it sounded!! He's one of the one's I'm almost positive is a male from all the other signs ...thick legs, thicker comb, feathering not as much as some of the others, more aggressive personality, always squaring off with any one of the other chicks. I'm not positive. Is it normal at his age, he'll be 5 weeks on Tuesday? What does it sound like?
