    I was wondering...are the Langshans part of the long crower family? I have 2 pairs...a white and a black pair. The black just learning to crow, and boy does he drag it out...I mean...when the other Roos crow it lasts like 3 seconds....Ebony's like 6 seconds long...he really hangs on to that last "dooooooooo" Is this normal for this breed???

    Too funny... Yep the heavy breeds seem to have a healthy crow, however it seems to be most extreme the first 24 months, then will decrease in volume and length as he becomes older. I just love to hear them sing....[​IMG]
