Cock-A-Doodle-Whaaaaa?

I have not told you about the chickens in quite some time and given the recent erm, activities of the Blue Andalusian rooster I think it is time I updated you on the birds in my goat pen. The male person and the publicist haven't named all the chickens, there are just too many of them but they do refer to the blue chicken as "Blue Guy." Hmmm, I do not think this is very original. Not at all, but I am not a human. He has turned into a very pretty chicken, as chickens go.




The big news in chicken world is Blue Guy has started crowing! Well, sort of crowing. He goes, "cock - a - doodle - aaaaaaaeeeeh." It's a very funny sound. The even funnier part of his crowing is his need to be on top of something when he makes his attempts. He crows from the top of their waterer...




Then he jumps down to find a grasshopper to eat. I must admit I am glad the chickens are eating the grasshoppers; they are very annoying bugs. I did not think I would like the chickens in my goat pen but they are serving some good.


He crows from the side of the chicken tractor....


He even crows from the roof of the chicken tractor!



I am beginning to wonder if he has the same hopping gene that Kevin the goat has!

I think he is teaching the other roosters how to crow. One of the Rhode Island Reds made an interesting sound today. Uh-oh!

  2. what time does the blue guy crow? when i was a little kid i had two ducks, seymore and charlie and a rooster named joe. he liked being on top of things when he crowed too. he would stand on top of seymore. i wonder if the goats would mind the blue guy crowing on their backs? i also have a cat that can't meow. she just says, waaaa.

  3. Those first crows are rather ridiculous sounding. They sound like some kind of sick squeezy toy. I don't think I thought completely through putting a rooster in with our goats, because I forgot to think that he would start crowing directly outside our bedroom window every morning!

  4. Wow, he got on to the crowing thing fast! Our 1 rooster just started to learn how to crow, he sounds like he has a cold and his first few times he did it, he made it look like it hurt. I'm glad I only have one rooster.

  6. Do they just crow ALL day?? I agree, that might be a tad annoying. But if they eat the bugs, it might make up for that.

  9. Crowing roosters...ah, those were the good old days. Ours have all crossed the Rainbow Bridge and boss man here on the ranch says no more chickens. I miss that they would eat all the grubs before they hatched into nasty flies!

  12. I didn't know that they ate grasshoppers nor did I realize that grasshoppers were a nuisance. We have far more crickets around here and they scare me with their jumps!

  14. Interesting! I really didn't know that roosters weren't born knowing how to crow properly. I assumed it was automatic. Beautiful roosters!

  15. Carolyn - yes, he is of Spanish extraction. He is very pretty.

    jaz - he crows at first light which wakes the publicist and male person. Then he crows throughout the day. I guess it goes with chickens.

    jenny - oh you poor thing. At least these chickens are a bit away from the humans. And they are far away from us goats. At least in the morning...

    Heather - I think the Farm is going to have 4 roosters; 3 Rhode Island Reds and Blue Guy.

    Cactus Jack - it is the first time I ever saw a blue chicken too.

    Lin - it is not constant. Just now and then. It's pretty funny. The humans like it. They eat A LOT of bugs. A LOT.

    missy - thank you for stopping by. I am glad you like my blog.

    Daisy - Blue Guy is very impressed with himself. Like most males....

    Split Rock - but you have llamas. Llamas are fun.

    Cici - you are very funny. Did you drink too much chlorinated water?

    Reese - meow, meow...meeeeooooowww.
    I am a bilingual goat.

    AB - what would you pay? Do you want my goatpal address? heh heh

    blueviolet - when we goats walk it is rather like the parting of the Red Sea except it is grasshoppers. There are thousands of them around here. They eat the garden which is not nice. It would be better if we goats ate the garden.

    Frogs - heh heh. We can talk. I want to lose Abby. What is your address? I will ship her to you. I will include a couple of chickens...call me.

    D'Anna - these have been very sad sounds. Very sad. And comical.
