This morning I went outside at about 5:50 and as I wandered around I heard a rooster. I thought it sounded close, like it came from the chook pen. It couldn't be one of my two little roosters, could it? I have only twice before heard one of them (Aragorn) give some fairly quiet squeeky noises. Then the rooster crowed again and I knew it came from the chook pen. Later the crowing started again and this time I saw Aragorn crowing. Not really loud..... YET.... But he certainly sounded like a proper rooster welcoming in 2014.
