    We've never had a roo, but that's what I'd imagine crowing looks like. [​IMG]

    mine do that as a warning.. if they see something overhead or a bunny in the yard or dog or cat.. she might be doing that

    Sounds like she was startled and alerting to danger. Also sounds like she may be a he. (My roos are the ones who get tall and do most of the warning calls) Sorry.

    What did these crys sound like? Sounds a bit like a young crowing cockeral or it could even be the warning/ egg song? Further description is needed. Was it bock bock bock or err er errrrrr?
