    So, I had a mature male adopt me just a year ago. He only vocalizes 3 sounds. First, the single "goose honk" and a two tone hi/lo "honk". when I feed or let out in the am a "cluck". I found lots of sounds clips and recorded on my phone (the honks) and play for him. He does not vocalize the "pee owww" or "mi aww" . My question is what are these calls? I read the "pi oww" are distress calls. Thinking about getting a hen. Sure like the green. He is a blue. Any help or reference much appreciated.
