    I have been wanting to get a pumpkin for my little children to eat and finally found one this morning! Below is a video of them devouring it. My cockerel (I think it's a male) in the background makes very very strange sounds...

    They're about 4 months old. They're very spoiled too [​IMG]

    Your rooster was calling his girls to a food source. Mine kinda sounds like a cluck in a box, like a deeper quieter clucking noise. He's doing what good roosters do!

    What nurse_turtle said. Your roo is making the "tid-bit for you my lovely ladies" sound. [​IMG]

    That's good to know! Such a good roo. I can't have roosters though [​IMG] He just hasn't started to "crow" yet so I've kept him.
