  1. Lee (NN/Bantam cross): <extreme tenor> Rooster-rooster-roooo!
    Herald (Lee's brother): <tenor> Rooster-rooster-rooster-BWAK-bockbock! (he's a little defective)
    Fugly (Silky/Bantam cross): Here boys, let me show you how it's done <smooth alto> Cock-a-doodle-doooOOOooo!
    Goliath (Leghorn/RIR): Ladies, please. <Basso> COCK-A-doodle-DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
    *birds fly out of trees, neighbor's dog stops barking, sheep next door baaaa nervously*

    Seriously, Goliath sounds like a hound dog!

    What do your roos sound like?

    Greenhead <medium in pitch, rather long, slightly scratchy>: Eh-EH-eehhhhh-EH

    He's a sweet little bantam cockerel that is sturdy and strong

    Stubby <hoarse, weak, short.: eh-erhk-Oooooo

    Stubby is another bantam, smaller than Greenhead. He has short legs, which is how he got his name. He sounds very pathetic when he crows!

    Puff <deep, melodious>: O-o-o-OOOOH

    I don't have Puff anymore, but he was a nice Wyandotte cock. Puff got his name because his hen's name is Cream.

    Prince Eric sounds like he needs a cough drop. Deep and gravely bass.

    Diego, my alpha...high, clear and piercing!
