    OK, I know this is going to sound like the beginning line of a joke but has anyone ever trained a rooster to crow on command? I am toying with the idea of getting a gamecock for a local college as a mascot. I would like to get one and hand raise it as a pet and try to train it to crow on command. Any thoughts or ideas?

    It should be easy since it is a natural behavior and one he will do daily! Look up clicker training - that is how to do it.

    Get a clicker, click and reward when he crows.

    That would be awesome. If you are successful let us know! I have taught our chickens to come on command and that's about it, but I'm sure if I tried I could get them to do more. [​IMG]
