    Is it possible for a rooster who was crowing with the previous owner to stop crowing for the new one? I've had Mr. Johnny Cash for about a week now, he's a Bantie Black Cochin. Previous owner said he crows in the morning. I've only heard him once (because I startled him). Not that I want to encourage his crowing [​IMG]

    I have 10 birds: 2 males (silkie and bantie cochin) and 8 females (cochin, two banties, sex-link, 2 easter eggers, NH, BA).

    don't really know, it is usually the case that they crow too much. I guess he could be unsettled, there are a few that don't crow all that much.
    wonder if you could breed that into a chicken?

    I thought my GLW had stopped. I found out he changed his time. Instead of 7:00 he backed it up to 5:30. I'm in the house at that time so I didn't know.[​IMG]
