    Hello, I'm new to raising chickens. I have a 18 week old rooster that crowed a lot but today he hasn't crowed but squeaks instead. I can't see any other symptoms. Any suggestions?

    I'm far from an expert, but maybe he has a throat infection or some kind of embolism that is preventing him from using his crowing apparatus effectively? Bet your neighbours are happy either way! :D

    The video says that it is private. Maybe your rooster is getting ready to crow, and is just figuring it out.
