I heard this godawful noise, but blew it off as the neighbors down the hill. Then heard it again, went out onto the deck to investigate and heard it a 3rd time coming from my BR rooster (the cooped one, the other is free range, as they don't get along). He is LEARNING to crow. It really was a terrible sound. I hope he gets it right. Sounded like baarrarrarwoo. RooRoo (Bachelor Boy) still hasn't crowed yet. I am thinking we put the coop too close to the neighbors place, I'm not sure where his house is down the hill, but I'd say about 50 yrds maybe? I do want babies that I don't have to pay for, for fryers - so I don't want to cull them. ??
