My grey rooster has lost his crow!!!! The poor baby tries his best to crow and it sounds like he is whispering. I feel so sorry for him. he doesn't act sick or anything, but it has been going on for a week now. All my other roosters are just fine. can chickens get laryngitis?? This maybe be a dumb question, but that sounds like what it is. I use to love when my mom got it growing up so she couldn't get onto me, but I never wanted for my poor rooster to stop crowing.
