    My rooster started crowing about 1 1/2 weeks ago. He doesn't seem to crow everyday (or I don't hear it) Is that normal? He still needs lots of practice.

    He's just in the learning stages, as time goes by he'll crow more.

    okay good. I was wondering if he heard himself crow and decided to stop that awful sound.

    My roo is screaming ATM and my son who is home with a slight fever is having a conversation with him. He (the roo)(son too) is young but thinks he is Cesar.

    Talk to your roo if you want him to crow. we have a few older bantys across the street who crow allot.

    Cock-ah-doodle-doooooooo eh.

    it worked for us.

    getting them to crow is the easy part it's trying to get them to shut up that is the hard part.

    I guess my rooster has been crowing but I just haven't heard it. My neighbor was out watering at 6:30 this morning and he heard the roo crow about 7 times. I'm just glad my neighbor loves the sound of the rooster crowing [​IMG]
