    Guess who just tried his hand, err wing, at crowing today? lol Funny story!

    I went to the coop this morning around 10am (it had been too chilly earlier) and let the chickens out into the yard. As usual, ChickenDuck comes out first to check the yard. He stretches, flaps his wings a time or two, stands up tall, and lets out this choked half scream, half strangled sound as loud as he could, followed by a soft peep that sounded like it had a question mark after it, and then looks up at me, obviously very impressed with himself!

    I nearly fell over laughing! [​IMG] The other chickens came runnin out afterwards, and he was strutting around all big headed for a good hour after that! I couldn't believe they'd be trying to crow ALREADY! But, we do have a Big Boy rooster across the way that they can hear, so maybe they're learning from

    Either way, it was cooo cute! Who would have thought, someone actually ENCOURAGING their roo to crow! [​IMG]

    You know those party horns where you blow out that streamer thing? My cockerels sound just like that. It's too hysterical.

    [​IMG] Little ChickenDuck is growing up so fast!! My husband and I used to lay in bed at who knows what awful time in the morning (ALWAYS between 4:30 and 6) and listen to Kip crow/choke. It then evolved to a "Rrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!" then "Rrr Rrrrrrrrrrrrrr" and now to the pathetic banty crow he has today! [​IMG]
