    I can tell individual roosters by their crow. Can someone tell what breed they are by their crow? Also, I have some young Polish roosters who are learning to crow. Will their crows sound like their dadÂ’s crow, he has a BEAUTIFUL voice, or like the head roosters crow who crows all the time? Or will we just have to wait and see? Thanks!!

    I have detected slightly different sounds associated with the different roosters I have had, the few times I have had multiple roos, that is. Ordinarially, I do not have more than 1 rooster, per breed, here. My living roos all seem very silent for now. I put my vocal one in the freezer yesterday......he was a 'pullet' that wasn't.
    These are the quietest roos I have ever had.
    I read, on a forum once, that no crowing might be considered a plus to some and that a quiet roos offspring might sell better.
    I will pay attention if my roos start singing. But I know what you mean.
