    I know this is probably a stupid question, but I am knew to the specialty chickens like silkes......
    I just wanted to know what kind of crow they have? Is it like a regular breed of chicken that is very loud, or is it softer?
    I know stupid but I would love to know.
    Thank you for helping.[​IMG]

    Mine have a kind of not perfected crow, and not real loud, but that could change.
    The other thing they do is they make strange noises all day, even growling. It's kinda interesting.

    All my silkie boys are just like my standard boys. They each have their own crow and can be just as loud and long. Only difference it is a shriller higher pitched sound from a proportionally smaller bird.

    ok well this is good to know.
    I figured if it was not that loud I could keep a roo, but if its the same then they will have to go.
    Uhhh I wish for a roo someday. [​IMG]
