    Exactly what you just read!
    Some of my polish bantam chicks that are only 6 days old have started crowing.
    It started on day 5, i heard a weird squeal one morning. I thought i chick was injured.
    I jump out of bed and run to the brooder, but everything looks normal.
    Then it happens a second time! And i see one of our chicks (the one that has been chest bumping the other chicks) puff up its chest, stick its neck out, and make alittle noise! [​IMG]
    Its the cutest but funniest thing.
    Ive been trying to get a video but they never do it once Ive got my camera, so typical [​IMG].
    The chick that's been crowing is very outgoing and will run up to my finger and peck it when i put it in the brooder.
    It also chest bumps with another one of my chicks (who i suspect is also a roo but haven't heard it crow yet).
    So i only have 4 chicks and it was looking like 2 are roos and the other 2 may be pullets.

    Well guess what, my chick that i thought was a girl, just started to crow too.
    So now it looks like i could have 3 roo's [​IMG]!
    I'm really hoping our last chick is a female because i was hoping to breed [​IMG].
    Either way it looks like i will need to get more polish bantam hatching eggs lol! [​IMG]
