As I walked around the corner of my shed, I found this little guy–a young Ancona cockerel–standing on top of his coop trying out his newly found skill of crowing. Like a pre-teen boy whose voice cracks as the hormones kick in, this little guy has some growing to do before he gets a full-fledged crow.
The quality of the video isn’t great, but I had to get it quickly before he saw me and jumped down. Here’s the whole 36 seconds! Listen closely, as there are some adult rooster crows interspersed. But when you hear the squeaky crow, you’ll know it.
