    OMG! I giggled at my little rooster on Tuesday for his pathetic crowing, and now he wont stop!!!! Did your rooster keep practicing till he got it right??? I have gone out there to check on the girls to make sure that they are ok and everything is fine... is he just trying to show off???

    LOL They are truly pathetic at first. My guy is 7 months and *still* doesn't really have it right if he gives a long, normal crow. He cuts it off short usually, before he gets to the "I'm out of gas" part at the end. [​IMG]

    Mine sounded like he was choking on a squeek toy. LOL! He finally got it right so he went to live on a friends farm. I am in the city and can't have a rooster:rant

    Funny you should post this - I think I just heard my cockerel try his first crow! He's 8 weeks old. I was in with them and heard this cry. It wasn't a typical pullet squawk. It was more of an "I'm being strangled" noise. I looked at him and he looked totally confused, kind of a 'where did that come from? wait...was that me?' look.
    Speaking of crowing, a few days ago I was hanging out with them and did a small 'cock-a-doodle-do' at them. They ran, huddled, froze together and freaked out! I didn't expect that - I didn't think I sounded remotely like a rooster [​IMG] But I won't do that again -
