    Well he finally crowed, if that's what that horrendous noise was... Is it supposed to sound like an angry squirrel??

    I kind of like the sound of them. but then again maybe that's why we don't have any close neighbors. [​IMG]

    I love hearing it outside, reminds me springs coming [​IMG] Inside its' fine, my roo inside only crows when the lights are on otherwise he's hush hush (and now that i say that he'll crow all night long [​IMG]).
