    Im sorry that this has happend to your poor roo. [​IMG] I am also sorry to say that I have no idea what could of happend. [​IMG] So sorry I can't help. I have only known a roo to barely crow at all, but that is just b/c of the breed the roo was, I have never heard of a roo crowing like normal and then losing his crow. [​IMG] Sorry I can.t help, maybe he will get it back again [​IMG]

    the older a rooster is the less they crow, and older birds tend to get respiratory diseases and don't have the capacity to crow as much. I hope your rooster is ok

    I'm in the same situation. My 1.5 yr old rooster started getting hoarse and now he can't crow anymore. I have no idea why. Otherwise he is fine. Please let me know if you find out anything. Best of luck to your rooster!
