    I have a Partridge Rock cockerel in one of my grow-out pens. He is 4 months old. For the last two weeks I have been hearing a high pitched pip or queak sound from the pen. This pen houses 2 BO pullets 10 PR pullets, 1 PR cockerel, and 1 Light Brahma cockerel. I was really beginning to wonder if one of them had a respiratory problem.

    Well anyway, this morning I am out opening all the doors and the pip has turned into the funniest, poorest crow I have ever heard. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now I have had plenty of roos in my time. I know it takes awhile for them to per-fect it. I know that the 12 roos I have now like to have a crowing contest every morning. I know that one of my bantam brahmas loves nothing better than to crow all day. But in all my life I have never heard anything so pittiful. I can only hope his to-be hens are deaf. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I love the ones with the crazy crows. I can get a good laugh from anywhere on my property when I hear them. Must be a bit embarrassing for them. LOL

    [​IMG] hahaha I have a silkie who was like that for a while too. He just got a big lungful of air and started screaming til he couldn't scream any longer, and then it always ended with a pitiful sqeaking noise. He sounded like a sqeaky toy (and looked like one too). Lol. He always made us laugh. He is a little better at it now, at two years old. [​IMG]
     
  5. Yes, my Silkie also has the wierdest crow. Sounds something like 'OOWWOOWHHAHH-AAHHHHHH!!!!!!' No kidding on that one. He sounds like a dying cow. [​IMG]

    2 years later and he hasn't perfected it yet...we still have our hope.

    I had a single combed silkie and his crow sounded like he was hiccupping in the middle of the crow [​IMG] Then I have a silkie right now that is the looooongest crower that I have.
