Hi all I have had roos since I first got into chickens so I have never been without at least one roo crowing. I really enjoy the deep crow a big hefty roo makes more then the higher pitch crow of say a bantam bird. But I must admit I very much like the crow of my Japanese Bantam (Lil big man), I truly love the sound of his crow which he sounds off every morning at around 5:00 and no other time. Plus now I have some Silkies that have turned out to be cockerels and are just learning how to crow so they sound awful but they still try to have a crow off with Lil big man of which they always lose to him. But it seems I have been taking their crowing in the morning for granted. I spent two nights with my friend who lives in town and has no animals what so ever (yeah thats right I was away from my flock for two whole days and nights and I worried nonstop about them but my dad was nice enough to call me on the second day to tell me everyone was ok) anyway each morning I would wake up at around 5:00 and lie there missing my Lil big mans crow I could not get back to sleep. I couldnt believe that it was affecting me so much, it made me realiz that his crowing and the awful crowing of my new lil boys was a very important part of my morning and I have a felling that having a flock just wouldnt be the same for me without a roo to crow. Anyone else enjoy their roo or roos (if you have a couple) crowing a lot?
