More specifically why do my silkie roosters roar like a dinosaur?
Because they ARE fluffy little dinosaurs.
And so true.
If it is the sound I think you're talking about, it's a warning call, esp. when something flew over.
Quote:One way to make mine do it is pickup a hen and when she flaps her wings that flapping noise makes all the roosters go ROOOOAR. Or GROOOOWWWL.
Mine did it when she was broody, she sounded just like a pteradactyl (spelling?) when we opened the nest box!
My roo will roar if I come into the coop after dark. I say it is a defensive sound. Letting you know to stay away.
Oh I love the t-rex noise. Chickens are the closest living relative to the t-rex, after all. Mine seem to do it when something isn't right, either a hawk flies over, or I relocate a nesting hen, or get to close to something I shouldn't. I would have to agree with it being a warning call or defensive sound.
TO MAKE US LAUGH OUR HEADS OFF, OF COURSE!
Does it kinda sound like this? errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr It's a sound that some kinda danger is around. Mine will make that noise if they see a shadow fly over the coop and will stand real still and make that noise. My best friend that works at a vet has some Emu's and when a large plane fly's over the male starts flopping around and kicking around like crazy It's sooo funnye He's trying to protect the eggs,but we have had lots of fun over there. It reminds me of a huge killdeer. Most of all I love the huge eggs and the color is so pretty oh and the babies
