At 7am last weekend I got a text message from my neighbour. “I can hear your rooster crowing”. I was at work. I called my sister who was at home. She verified. Rooster like noises.
I had heard the odd noise that I thought sounded vaguely rooster-ish but I was the only one that had heard it, so I convinced myself that I was losing my mind. But this was on repeat, no denying. Strangled Rooster.
She doesn’t sound exactly like a rooster more like a strangled adolescent rooster. It ain’t pretty on the ears. Worth googling if you have time, the videos are pretty accurate. Trust me I did some googling! Does a rooster squat? Can girl chickens crow? Can a chicken be both a girl and a boy? Can you get roosters that don’t crow? Some fairly irrational googling!
Lucky for her she also laid her first egg that day!!
It is tiny!!!!! She has now laid 3 eggs. The rooster noise is unrelated to egg laying. She just rips it out when she feels like it. Quite inconvenient….
