    I am suspicious, but not convinced. The larger bird in the picture, approximately 6-7 month old EE. Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but...any ideas?

    Darn it! I can't have a roo! I had heard a strangled occasional crow, but my hens have done that before. It is only like once a day that I hear it.
