    I don't know , they sound like super intelligent roos to me! Not crowing, sweet, I think everyone would wish for that. Yes these roos are smart to not do the things that would put them in the pot!

    Do you have a problem with the "no crowing"? I know many who would be glad to take him off your hands. [​IMG] Just sayin'.

    Hmmmmm.... maybe having a name like "Button" makes him feel a little less manly.[​IMG]

    As long as you're certain he's a roo, maybe he's still practicing for the big "CROW". Try renaming him "Spartacus" or "Thor".

    X5. I have a roo that has a rolling "r" to his crow. He sounds like he is saying "arrrrrriba!" everytime he crows. I'll trade you!
