Chicken doesn't "cock a doodle do" : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

My rooster doesn't "cock a doodle do" anymore or at least I don't hear it and I have been trying to listen for it could there be something wrong?

Just thank God for small favors! I should be so lucky!

If you find out the reason, let us know - maybe we can duplicate it. Have you had your ears checked and cleaned?

God is smiling on you! I have several obnoxious roosters you may have to restore your faith in the natural sunrise alarmclock! GL!

A decrease in crowing can indicate your rooster isn't feeling well. Have you watched him to see if he seems lethargic or maybe noticed other outward signs of an illness?

is it dead?

Oh, Stan! My first thought was, "are you sure it's a rooster"? But enough already :>)

He may not be old enough to crow. My roosters usually don't crow until five to six months old, but they try and it comes out somewhat garbled. It takes them a couple of months to get that ear splitting cock a doodle do that wakes me up just before the alarm does.

Be thankful, I have two loud roosters in the barn and it sounds like "dueling banjos" out there.
