This morning when I went outside to feed the chickens I heard a strange sound--a raspy, wailing "Roo-oo-oo." I didn't have a clue as to what it could be. Neither did the dogs; they raced around barking, try to figure out what it was. Then I realized the sound was actually coming from the chicken coop --one of the roosters must be learning to crow!
When I went into the coop, I discovered it was the smaller, buff-colored rooster making all the racket. He was strutting around, quite proud of himself, even though he doesn't really sound recognizably like a rooster yet.
