    I was up all night sick, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed this.
    My 14 week old turken cockerel Impy started crowing at 5:30 this morning (still pitch black outside). He'd crow 7 to 8 times, quit for five minutes, crow 7 or 8 more times, quit for 5 minutes, repeat. He finally quit at 6:30.
    This little guy sure has alot to crow about. Wish I knew what it was. [​IMG]

    Quote:Funny thing about this little guy. He'll stand right next to my meatie cockerel (same age) Ollie and crow. Ollie outweighs him by about ten pounds. Impy hasn't gone face to face with my adult roo Thor yet. I'm pretty sure Thor is going to show him who is the real boss of the yard. [​IMG]

    one of my girls just started crowing. Ive been shushing her because the neighbors are gonna kill me! so she starts crowing and i come around and she stops. not this morning. i heard her crowing from upstairs so i ran outside to plead with her to knock it off....she looked me straight in the eyes, stretched out that big ugly neck of hers and belted out the loudest crow ive ever heard!....im gonna miss her.



    (yeah, its seems weird to call her a him, so im gonna keep calling him a her)

    I'm new to turkens, but have had other chickens for years. These guys have ATTITUDE. When mine were 6 weeks old one got out of the run pen and promptly went over to a huge sunbathing Brahma boy and lay his head on the Brahma (he either knew who was just very lucky as the Brahma boys are entirely soppy).
    The turkens are unafraid of anything!

    But your namesake is dangerously close to losing his head. [​IMG]

    Well Gritsar it will be easy to see where the neck ends!

    Hope you're better and Impy is dancing/crowing for you.
