    :eek: I've got some Dk Cornish Bantams that are nearing 6 months of age now. The boys have been "practicing" their crowing skills for over a month, maybe even 6 weeks, and aren't even CLOSE yet [​IMG] . My Lt Brahma roo got it after 2 - 3 weeks! So I'm starting to wonder if they'll ever get it right, or if I'm destined to hear the "rr EE rrr rrrr" sound forever... I know Cornish mature a little slowly, but this is bordering on ridiculous (but cute at the same time [​IMG] ).

    Don't get me wrong, it isn't that I'm not getting a kick out of them - believe me, I am [​IMG] . But there are three of them, each one with a different sound, and now I've also got three Dominiques that are getting into the act. Soon to follow will be the Buff Brahma... Some days more than others - like when they go off every hour on the hour, well, that gets to be a bit much. I love the baby rooster music most of the time. I was just wondering if some roos just don't ever get it quite right, or if some just need more time than others [​IMG] .
