    You really started something here with the crowing babies. I've got a 6 day old white araucana who has declared himself. Crowing since yesterday and actually getting pretty good at it. Every time I go in and talk to the chicks, he belts one out. [​IMG] It is just the cutest thing. On a positive note..he's a tufted rumpless and I was hoping to grow out another cockerel, so I am encouraged by this little hatch. [​IMG]

    Whoa, what's with all the early crowers this hatching season? That's wild! Glad it's one you wanted to be a "he"!

    That is nice when they crow early, you can cull or keep it now that it gave its self away.. [​IMG]

    Boy, Im pretty encouraged then. Of the very first 5 that I have hatched from Jody's aussies and aracaunas, I havent heard a peep out of them at 15 days! Of course the only thing they've heard around here is barking, so if one of them starts to bark, I know Im in trouble.
