    It's hilarious, but they get all upset when you laugh at them....which makes it even funnier.

    I love it when my young cockerels start crowing. Makes me smile. And sometimes it makes me laugh - but I try not to let them hear me [​IMG]

    Here's Duke about a year ago - he was only 6 weeks old

    [​IMG]

    And here's Pico, an 8 week old cockeral, crowing this morning - the loud crow is what Duke sounds like now, and the other is Pico answering him

    Music to my ears. I've got four of them serenading me now. Lordy, I love my boys.
