    Ok...here is a Youtube video of what I'm wondering is the beginnings of crowing? Any ideas?

    I don't think I have any either...just hoping!
    Didn't think they'd be that good at sexing!
    Thank you for your response!
    They definitely were very happy...I just gave them 2 bags of shredded CABOT cheese! [​IMG]

    "what do you have there?" "a chicken!" [​IMG] SO CUTE!!!

    All I heard was a bunch of girls doing that crazy frog crocking noise they like to do so much. How old are they? I think you have a bunch of girls. They look big enough to where if you had a roo, he'd be crowing before now.

    Sounds like girls getting near laying age to me. Didn't see a single roo in that bunch there and if you had one, he'd be doing big crows by now I'd think.

    24~19.5 week old EE's. I don't have a roo to compare with...so I keep hoping maybe ONE will end up a roo! Amazing that MM actually sexed them right...I watched a video from Dirty Jobs and saw how they were sexing them! EEWWWUCK!
    I'm going to have a ton of eggs....going to have to buy another FRIG! [​IMG]

    Yep. A whole lot of girl noises.

    Your chickens are so good with your daughter! Mine run from me, but love my daughter (probably because she's 'their size' - 2 yrs).

    This dd is #3 girl...chicken whisperer. They let her pick them up all the time...when my older dd's try to pick one up the chickens squawk like crazy! My 3 year old is a true chicken whisperer...I swear. They are so kind to her and run from us!
    She's starting preschool next week...going to cry like a baby I am! [​IMG]

    My hens make the same noises, it's just hen chit chat. I didn't hear any crowing. That little girl was the cutest thing ever! "A chicken!" What a doll. [​IMG]

    What a cool way to share video online. I have to admit that I was scarred to open it after the vent shot...thought you'd moved to making chicken porn. Just kidding! You have such a nice flock. They are sooooo cute and your daughter is adorable. I can tell that you and your family are really enjoying your chics.
