And he celebrated by crowing for the first time The rest of them are looking and sounding more like hens than chicks so it appears he's the only boy in my "sexed pullet" order of 10. OH, and one of the 16-week Welsummers was so impressed by his crowing, she dropped to the ground in a squat at the sound of it. And he had no action to follow his boast... I suspect he's been practicing his song while I wasn't around because he sounded awfully polished for day 1. Just a few creaks and then he had it. So, he crowed a number of times early for the kids, gave me a show when I came out, and then nothing since 8AM. Fingers crossed he's not horribly annoying and doesn't get mean because my husband was dead set against having a rooster until the kids' favorite chick sprouted a comb early.
