We have grown used to the crowing contests between Impy, our turken cockerel and Ollie, our CX cockerel. These boys can go on for hours. Impy still sounds like a banshee, with a crow that's more like a screech, but Ollie had a fine cockle-doodle-do.
The other day I noticed that Ollie's crow was getting shorter. Yesterday it was down to just a cockle-doodle; today it's barely a do.
DH said he's worn out his crower by using it too much, but I feel that he's just gotten so large that he can't get the lung power necessary for a good crow going.
It's kinda sad.

Just thinking of poor Ollie and his missing crow.

Maybe practice with Ollie - getting him to beak-sync with this crow:
Make him the long crower of the flock.

I play this over and over for my gang - no one has extended their crow yet!

The first one who does, gets a free pass from freezer camp

Ha! My boyfriend made a recording of our old BO rooster on his cell phone. He wants to figure out how to make it into a ringtone. LOL. I also caught him cueing it up to play for our new Blue Copper Marans roo.... I quickly ended that idea! That one needs to wait as long as possible (preferably until we move in January) so the neighbors don't kill me
