    I need help QUICK.. Someone is about to take one of my boys, but I don't know whether I should keep the one whose call is high pitched or low pitched?

    I Dunno If There Is Any Corelation To Performance Or What Have You, But I Can Tell You This--- Low Pitched Doesnt Carry As Far As High Pitched Crows, So If Noise Or Neighbors Are A Concern Mr Squeaky Would Be Packin His Bags,,,,

    I ended up catching the low boy first.. But I might end up getting him back, it turns out the guy wanted a breeder. And he has bob hens [​IMG] But for now I have two high pitched roos
