I just heard "Picante" one of my EE roos crow for the first time yesterday!!! I am such a proud rooster mama....and I can't wait for my other 2 (possibly 3 to start). I enjoy the sound, crazy as that may seem to some folks LOL. But I'm way off in the country and my chicken pen is a good ways from the house- so the boys are welcome to make as much ruckus as they please. I haven't heard him crow at all since he belted out 3 good ones in a row yesterday afternoon. He seemed startled by something when he did it- and then seemed even more startled by the noise he'd just made. LOL. And a few days ago, hubby and I went to a local gamebird farm to pick up some quail, and the guy had several young Silkies running around. They weren't much older than my birds, yet two of his Silkie roos were running around crowing their fool heads off. It was about 6 in the evening....Hubby was suprised, he said, "I thought roosters only crowed in the morning??" I knew they would crow any time of day....but I got to wondering if maybe our presence had triggered them to start crowing. And so that got me thinking even more....so I figured I'd post this and see what "habits" everyone else's roos have?? So tell me- do yours crow more at a certain time of day, or are they noisy all day long? Does there seem to be a trigger that'll get your roos crowing, or do they crow for no apparent reason?? Share your roo crowing experiences!!
