It’s almost like a baby kitten hissing at you. Or a little lap dog barking like the vicious attack dog he thinks he is. But somehow a mostly-grown bantam rooster learning how to crow is much funnier than any of that.
You can really hear it at the 17 second mark when one of the “regular” roosters and a bantam crow at the same time. Makes me laugh every time.
The bantams (or banties as we call them around here) were hatched in April, so they’re pretty much the equivalent of teenagers. They won’t get much bigger but they will likely fill out a bit more and it won’t be long till they begin laying eggs and being grown-up chickens. They are, however, about half the size of a regular hen. And everything small is adorable.
And funny. Just thought you should know. 😉
