    I was just checking on my chicks and my roo was doing this weird thing with his mouth. Like he would open his mouth really wide, and have like a convulsion like a cat coughing up a hairball. I am a newbie with chickens, but it looked like the motion that roosters make when they crow....but no sound came out. He did it like three times in a row. Is that his warm up to crowing? He is 5 weeks old today. Even though I have been convinced that he is a roo for a couple of weeks now (see my avatar pic and you will know why [​IMG] ), I actually can't wait for the crow for it to be confirmed!!

    I would say get ready for the dying cat sound soon. I had a roo that did that a few times & he was around that age.
