    My 21 little babies (9 weeks old) were being put in their tractor when I heard the strangest noise... someone crowed for the first time. I think I caught the culprit. When I turned around really quick, there was one Ameraucana/EE with the neck stretched up and back.

    Yay I have a roo! [​IMG] I have been trying to locate a roo for the girls and I have one in the baby group. hehehehe

    This is the suspected culprit of the little crow: Her/His name is currently Deville

    I will be watching closely now to see who HE is. I am so happy about it because now I do not have to worry with a roo I do not know because I have raised this one from day 2. [​IMG] Does that look like a little roo? I am going to get a good pic of him/her in a few minutes. DONE here they are:

    So what do ya'll think...Roo? Or should I keep looking through the 21 of them to find the crowing one. hehehehe

    Looks a bit roo'ish to me. [​IMG] Whether male or female, that's going to be one good looking chicken!

    Yup, you found your culprit. Definitely a boy and a very handsome one too.
