Most of the 23 remaining Ameraucana chicks I got from John Blehm 6 weeks ago are outside in their own chicken tractor and play yard, but I was concerned about one little one (who I strongly suspected was a cockerel because of the distinctiveness of the black and white in his feathers). Just to make sure he was OK, I brought him inside last night, along with another bird that I also strongly suspected was a male Silver Ameraucana. Well, I was right -- they're male. I've heard at least eight or ten baby boy crows over the last three hours. These are NOT peeps -- they are the beginner crows of a baby boy rooster who is just beginning to learn how to crow. I remember hearing my Easter Egger boy crow at eight weeks, back two years ago when DaddyRoo was a baby. But this is even earlier than DaddyRoo's first attempt at crowing.
