    But also makes this squeaking sound, or a little chirp, kind of sounds like a baby chick. Is that normal? I haven't been around many roosters, but never heard it before. It's kind of cute, but is he ok?

    Roosters make all kinds of noises. Just like hens. Mine after he crows makes a noise like a squeaky toy does when it pulls the air back in.

    My rooster, the dominant one, makes so many noises. There's the annoying and excessive scream-crow, that high pitched chirping that he seems to make when he's particularly excitable, the clucking, and then the velociraptor-my favorite. :)

    I believe your rooster is fine, and probably happy.

    Haha that's funny. I figured he was ok, but I tell you, every time I hear him do it, I think "we have chicks??"
    Thanks.
