    All of my 'babies' are finally crowing!!

    My little serama & frizzle are older so they've been at it for a while but my 'babies' were starting to worry me, they've been OBVIOUSLY mature for quite some time now, doing the dance & 'deed'...

    This last weekend Dinky, my barred EE roo finally let one out!! it was to *perfect* [​IMG] (SO glad it wasn't one of those pathetic, "help i'm dying!" ones!)...Him & the serama were going back & forth all day, it was hilarious [​IMG]

    Then finally this morning, Snowy, my cutsie, little Cochin/Aracauna mix figured out his voice... it was like he couldnt get enough of himself! all day, seemed like every 5 minutes he'd let a couple out.. while stretching his neck out as far as it could possibly go..like he didnt want it to *ever stop* [​IMG]

    Then finally around 4pm, I think Domino got irritated with Snowy and decided to try & upstage his self proclaimed 'perfect crow'.... let's just say it was a little less that pretty [​IMG] It lasted about 2 seconds before he lost it ... "err err err err gurggle BLAH!!" I swear i nearly couldnt breath i was laughing so hard! poor little baby, i felt bad for him...especially since he's the biggest, strongest-looking boy in the bunch...

    I wonder if they'll pick on him? [​IMG]

    I love the sound of crowing - especially in the morning. I am currently nursing a sick roo and know it will be a sign of recovery when he regains his voice.

    Roosters have Never bothered me, even when they crow all day long.

    I don't understand why theres so many people, mainly in the city that just cant stand their crowing.

[​IMG]
    I'd love to have a rooster, but would probably get my girls confiscated for it...and that is NOT happening...
    I shall dream of a future with a large lifestyle block, or better... [​IMG]
    A roosters crow, in my opinion, is much better than an alarm clock, but my opinion isn't theirs... [​IMG]
    Congrats on your boys getting their voices!!! [​IMG]
