    Nothing above a barely audible peep that I've heard. Of course, he's in the garage, so I wouldn't likely hear anything short of a peacock screech from the inside. He's so beat up that I would think that any such effort would probably hurt him. He did do some squawking when I caught him to check over his leg.

    When he was with us, he chirped alot when other birds were around. He even would chirp at me if I stayed with him long enough. I always thought he was sweet.

    So sorry to hear about your chicken loss [​IMG] I am on pins and needles everyday hoping that it cools down soon[​IMG] I am not an extreme weather person and if i'm sweating, I can't imagine what it's like to have feathers or fur for that matter! Trying to keep the ladies cool and dogs never stay outside for more than five minutes, just long enough to do the essentials.

    Keep giving the girls electrolytes. So it turns out that last week I was just wishing that my Big Red was laying. She actually laid her first brown egg yesterday!!(in this heat-of all crazy things!)
    Now that all 3 ladies have started laying, my mind keeps wanting to focus on next spring, which breeds are at the top of my list and all the chicken math involved!

    Well hope everyone has a good Thursday and hope no one else had anymore losses.

    After spending the entire day cleaning up the yard, mowing, and putting tools away, I've decided that the coop is in the luckiest shade spot in the yard. I kept taking breaks to hang out with them because it was so much cooler there.

    Here are Lightening McQueen and Eliza. Lightening is the one that bit me this morning...little bugger. If anyone tries telling me that Eliza is also a cockerel instead of a pullet, I'm going to lose what's left of my feeble mind.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO [​IMG]

    OK, one has pokey feathers that go up on the tail and the other only had feathers going down. I know I'm a newby and I'm just reading books to get my info but she just has to be a pullet. [​IMG]

    how old are they? My BR, Mabel has a lot of waddle and comb too. Forgive the poor quality pic, this is while she was still in quarantine.
    I got her as a "give up" at about 5-6 months old last summer.
