One of my white Silkie roos and my buff bantam Cochin roo were having a crowing contest today. They don't quite have it down pat yet, and it was sounding a bit strained and incomplete. They are only about 7 weeks old. So I thought I would chime in and teach them a thing or two about how a crow is supposed to sound. At the top of my lungs, I did my best crow (and I'm very good- I used to have a big roo). I couldn't see the Cochin from where I was, but the Silkie looked so dismayed that I will never do that again. He looked absolutely crushed and I felt like a meanie.
