    Hey guys! I have a young roo that I had sitting with me and he opened hi mouth toward the sky like he was stretching his mouth and trying to couch something up.... Is that how they crow? He didn't make a sound, but I thought he might be trying to. (He's young so he might not able to crow yet)

    Their a pitiful thing when they start. Like a boy who's voice cracks only their pitch goes higher. The notes come day by day. Some flap their wings and let loose, others just stretch their necks and let loose. You'll know when he starts flexing the pipes. You'll say, what Do you call that! [​IMG]

    My sons roo is 16 weeks and just started trying to crow last week. I though someone was honking some kind of horn at first. Now he's crowing but it sounds like he's in a box.

    I've got one other rooster that crows all day and night. Who knows if that gets the little ones started earlier or not.

    Quote:Probably just adjusting the food in his crop, or yawning. Mine do it as well, but not just the cockerel.
