Our roosters have been going through puberty. Dr. Pepper’s crow has been improving since we first introduced it. Suddenly, the other day, The Colonel is finally heard from – although it’s more a croak than crow.
Dr. Pepper crows in the morning to welcome the day. Or maybe to tell us to get heck outside and open up the coop. He crows whenever we wander outside, as if to get our attention. One of those days when Dr. Pepper was chatting with us, The Colonel joined the fray.
Our cocka-doodle-doo dueling roosters are a regular thing now. Even Clover (our other bantam rooster) is crowing along. They’re not exactly the Three Tenors, but they certainly entertain us!
