    We had 4 chicks born the first of July. All different types and we thought all hens. One of them started developing a bigger comb and its tail seemed to stick up a little more. But I told the kids we wouldn't know for sure untill we heard it crow. Guess what I heard this morning?!! It was more of a racket than a cockadoodledoo, but it was definately a crow!! Guess wer'e set, 3 hens and a rooster, and a male and a female Guinea. What luck out of an assortment of eggs [​IMG] .

    Its a wonderful sound isn't it! Mine is just now starting to try and crow. When it crowed this weekend (more like a horrible squeak) my daughter started laughing and stated "oh look his first words" [​IMG] I love the sound a rooster makes, I just hope my neighbor does too.

    Sure is cheap entertainment hearing a rooster crow for the first time & many more times afterwards until he gets it right! We have one roo in particular that will flap his wings everytime before he crows - guess he's trying w/ all he's got to muster up enough energy to crow. But when he does it sounds more like he's dying than crowing. [​IMG]

    The new crow just cracks me up. They are just trying so hard! My older roo will usually show off and do it after the newbie :)

    Mine do that sometimes too. After our roo that crows so funny/weird is done we often wonder if the other roos and hens are laughing at him as much as we are. They probably wish he'd [​IMG].

    [​IMG] Congratulations! The first crow is just as exciting as the first egg!! At least it was for me. I still love to hear my roosters crowing. It just makes my heart smile. [​IMG]
