    I'm anxious to hear crow(s) from my baby roos. Don't know why, since they are living right under our bedroom window [​IMG]

    I tried the rooster ringtone on my cell phone yesterday. It never fails to set my adult rooster off. If I play it for him once - out of sight, but where he can definitely hear it - it gets him crowing non-stop for at least half an hour.

    Tried it on the baby roos yesterday and not one crow as a result. [​IMG]

    I bet those little fellas thought, "Oh NO, not ANOTHER Big Rooster we have to worry about! Shhhh, shhhh, don't you open your yap or I'll peck you! We don't want any attention from the Big Guys!"

    Quote:I think that's exactly it! They've heard my adult roo crow, they've been checked out thoroughly by my adult hens. The chicks are all just trying to stay invisible and hope they don't draw attention to themselves. [​IMG]

    Still, baby crows are so cute. Can't wait.
