    My "babies" are 14 weeks and 2 days. I was supposed to receive only pullets but I got 2 surprises.......1 GLW and 1 SLW roosters. Spartacus and Nero. Spartacus is truly not attractive but Nero is beautiful. He is still a small size compared to my 2 full grown hens, but he is just lovely. I let them out of the hen house today and while I was throwing scratch, Nero fluffed himself, stretched his neck and (for lack of a better word) made a "Doodle"! It really wasn't impressive, it sounded like he was kinda choked but it was LOUD! I was so excited, I ran all the way back to the house for my phone. He "Doodled" once more, before I had my phone ready, of course....but hasn't done it again. I am so proud!!! I think:ya I hope he won't start "Behaving Badly now...". I have decided to just enjoy the moment. My baby is growing up!

    LOL, congratulations! I love the learning to crow stage, always makes me smile.

    My two Delaware Blue Hen roosters have not quite found the "doodle" yet.
