    .....is he crowing because of me.....?


    He crows, I clap and say "Yeah, big boy, that's it!" and then he crows again....we can keep this up for a good 10 minutes ( I have no life, obviously) hehe. IS he crowing because I'm clapping? Are they that smart?

    Those sebrights are absolutely the most beautiful birds ever. I've never kept bantams, but for them I would.

    Your roo is probably thinking, "boy, she's so clever - I can make her clap whenever I want".

    hahaha,,, my rooster ( who hates my wife) crows at her whenever he sees her, or whenever she calls him "pretty boy" i think they like the attention, and figured when they crow you pay attention to them.

    He is so beautiful. I love the coloring.

    As far as the crowing, it is so funny what we can get animals to do.

    Have fun with your beautiful boy! [​IMG]

    I have no life either,,, my Sultan Rooster,,,Sultan (yes, I named him all by myself,haha) does that same thing. I just call out,,,'Sultan,,,Sultan of Swing", and he crows for me. It can last for many Sultans of Swing, before one of us gets tired, or the people within ear shot, thinks I've gone completely nuts!!! You have a beautiful "man-bird" thats for sure. Keep it up!!!
