I went out to feed the chickens (as usual) and after doing my usual squawking, clucking, talking-to-the-chickens routine while pouring their feed, I stepped into the brooding coop where I keep the food.
I heard a rooster crow.
It wasn't Katherine's rooster either...it was one of my 11-week old birds.
Stepping out of the coop and watching the chicken tractor I knew that crowing young rooster was, I threw back my head and crowed. (I'm kind of out of practice so it was rather non-professional sounding; no eavesdropping please! ;D)
I waited a minute and then Katherine's rooster crowed...and then one of mine. It wasn't the one I thought it was going to be, and I still am not sure I saw correctly.
Anyway, I tried crowing a couple more times, but the young one never made another peep after that--but I had gotten the old bird started out there with his hens...and he was still crowing when I came in!
And yes, he sounds far better than I did!
