I am new to having chickens and LOVING it!!! I never thought I would love chicken, let alone a rooster. At first I was disappointed when my favorite Polish turned to be a rooster but he is soooo amazing and I even take him to work (at the moment he had head injury from being pecked so badly, but is healing nicely). So I put him in a big doggie cage at work. He is 15 weeks. Occasionally, he crows, and I checked his food and water....empty. So I put some more. The next time around, he crows and food and water are still full. So I jokingly crow at him. He responds to my crowing. Then started this silly game. When he is resting, I crow at him from far away....and he immediately replies back at me! I thought this must be a joke.... Then I put bets with my employees.... I waved at him (a Polish named Julio), he got excited and crowed. Sometimes He crows and then I ran to him and cuddled him for 2 seconds and he stops. Then he crows at me until I answer, then he stops. DOES HE RECOGNIZE ME?????? Is chicken that intelligent????? My employees joked that,"Julio is calling you!!!" When I come to him, he calms down and seems content. Is this real? Or I'm just making a make believe????
