One of my roosters makes a weird sound after crowing

    After he crows (I think it is when he breaths in) he makes a sound almost like if he has a sore/clogged throat, I have search for video of a rooster that made the same sound and found this video, (listen carefully after the crow) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEZUY_iDGZ0#t=10s

    anyone know what it might be?

    Mine do it too! I think it is really funny....it is because when they crow they literally use up all of the air in their lungs, so they have to inhale sharply after a crow. And it makes that little noise.
