    Why is my rooster pheasant sounding off like chicken rooster? You know how they make crowing noise. My Roo does it every morning around 5 o'clock. Off and on all day, is there something i should be looking for or what?

    Yes, look for some hens for him or if you have hens, look for eggs. It's the start of the breeding season.

    My last pair of Golden started laying about a week ago, this warm spell got them into it I guess. The bobwhites are laying, and the coturnix never stopped.[​IMG] Oh, and my OEGB's started laying again. If they lay then it is officially Spring.

    YOU SEE AS A MALE PHEASANT YA JUST CANT EVER BE SURE WHEN A LONELY PHEASANT HEN HAPPENS TO BE WANDERING PAST YOUR HOUSE WITH A SPECIAL ITCH THAT YOU COULD HELP WITH? AND SINCE YA NEVER KNOW WHEN WHAT'S A LAD TO DO? ADVERTIZE!!! SINCE HE CANT GET IN THE HOUSE AND USE YOUR COMPUTER AND CREDIT CARD TO ORDER POSTERS/ BUSINESS CARDS HE'S DOING THE BEST HE CAN--- CROWING [​IMG]
