    My Black Australorp has a loud deep growl lasting about 5-6 seconds, and he'll repeat it a couple more times.

    Sounds like the egg song, just louder. My roosters also make a sound like a deep "whaaaaaaaa!" when they see hawks/other flying objects.

    So that's what that noise is! I heard a really loud egg song the other day and went to see who it was. Turns out it was my MFC roo, Crispin. Couldn't figure out why a roo was singing the egg song!

    Oh Ive heard my rooster sing the eggs song. And When I went t "smack" up my rooster for trying to attack me, he started to do the eggs sing BUT SUPER LOUD... huh guess sometimes he thinks Im a threat, But my wouldent he is Im going to give him a good kick [​IMG]

    I have hawks in my area. But I havent seen one fly by in 2 years (around my house). So idk if he will make a noise.
