Yes, finally, he's 13 weeks. Sir Feisty roo has come of age! I know, not a baby chick but I've read so many postings about early crowers that I thought I'd add my roos delayed vocal abilities. Up until yesterday all he did was peep like a little chick (the hens have been clucking for weeks now). I guess he just needed a kick in the pants which came at 6 AM this morning when the compressor my DH left plugged in went on & the whole family woke with a start...apparently including the chickens. One little crow from the coop, but when I opened their pop door he came strutting to the front and had a hissy fit when 2 of the hens squeezed past him and ran into the yard. He flew down and sumarily pecked both their heads then let out a crow. ALL of the hens on the stoop waiting to come down ran back into the coop & the 2 that were out headed for the little hiding shelter I built them under the deck. He crowed 2-3 more times, then went about his business of looking for breakfast. In a few minutes the girls timidly peeked out of the coop, then came pouring out to join him (including the 2 that came running from under the deck). I guess I officially have a roo (we knew that by his appearance, but he has only begun to actually act like a roo and look out for his ladies). Now we need to monitor him so he doesn't tick off the neighbors...can't bribe em with eggs just yet. But still, my girls have a roo! BTW I'm much more excited about this than my DH.
