    For a long time I thought Moe was gender challenged, [​IMG] Well this morning when I went to feed them I saw him do the rooster dance to one of the girls, when DH came down Moe crowed for him not once but three times in a row. Good boy! DH said that I should not get to happy as now the neighbors might not like it to much. My chickens make a lot less noise that their son. I had to share this.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] I can;t wait for my little roo to crow. I don't care if the neighbors like it. I love to hear a rooster crow. Mine does the whole work up until the actuall crow but when he opens his mouth nothing comes out. We laugh at him. He is in rooster puburty he'll get there.

    Moe would for the longest time sound like someone was trying to choke him, yours will soon get it. Good luck

    I just love to hear mine crow. Gumbo started like a month ago and I love to hear him every morning.

    I understand about the neighbors LOL. I have special little rooster houses for my guys so that me and the neighbors will stay friends. I just went let them out their houses for the day. It works well...they still crow in the morning but it is so low that the neighbors can't hear it. Now once they're out after 8:30 they can crow till their heart's content!

    I have a little mutt roo that started the choking crow at four weeks old! No mistaking the gender there.
