    Also one last question he seems to puff out his neck feathers which are very pointy why does he do that

    All chickens will flare their neck feathers - it's a challenge. It makes them look bigger, tougher. Even pullets/hens will do that, when establishing and maintaining the flock pecking order.

    And "baby crowing" is so... cute... they sound so inadequate at first! Like old time horns on Model Ts.

    The best part is that they are SO proud of themselves when they first learn to crow. My baby is so bad, all of my other roosters sound the alarm call when he crows. [​IMG]
