My one year old rooster started making funny noises a while back, and he does them a lot now. Definitely not his crow, his alarm call, egg song reply, goodnight noises or look at this tasty food noises! It does not sound like the girls when they purr either. He makes it with his beak closed, so it’s not loud, and it’s usually very long and sounds a bit like a car screeching round a corner. The girls take zero notice, and he is usually just standing around either alone or with the girls when he makes it! I haven’t managed to get a good recording yet, but I’d love to know what it means. I thought maybe a contented noise, but he’s not dust bathing or anything when he does it! Any ideas? Sometimes he does a few in a row or an extra long one.
