    I have only heard it a couple of times but my husband heard it too. Is there a bantam that sounds kind of like a turkey? Now I don't mean exactly like a turkey as I have never had a turkey...but that is what comes to mind first. I have two d'uccle roos and it isn't either of them. I'm pretty sure it isn't my silkie as she's a hen. The only other is a buff cochin bantam. Any ideas what this is and who is doing it?

    Thanks. I think its the cochin...starting to sound like a crow but still a bit "turkey-ish".

    Our serama hens had an egg song that sounded similar to a turkey gobble.
