    Well in april I went to my local feed store ( big mistake LOL ) they had in the shipment of easter chicks and ducklings and rabbits. Well I told the lady i would like three little girl chicks - no problem she said, grabbed three little chicks along with two ducklings and a rabbit I could not say no to and away home we went.
    Well after many weeks of wondering who or what everyone is I finally was able to tell on the ducks and two of my chicks but the third one was still a puzzle until this morning I went outside early heading to work and was surprised to see my now huge white chicken already awake and crowing !!! I am so happy to finally know he/she is a Roo but now I am still trying to find out what breed !!
    Now the only question I have is where do I set the time on him and does KFC ( my hubby named him) have a snooze button somewhere???

    I guess I have a Brown Leghorn Roo, he tried really hard yesterday to crow, like to have scared me to death, I was out in the yard and heard the awfulest sound coming from the coop, lol, it was him. Too cool to hear them for the first time.

    give him some time. it sometimes take roos a while to crow. some are just a little slower than others...

    Some of our Americauna/EE roos just started to crow the past few days. It's not very loud (yet), and sounds very funny. [​IMG] They're a little over 3 months old. [​IMG]
