What in the world is that noise...
Fletcher the rooster makes this awful noise. It resembles the sound one of those old horns make, the one that has the rubber ball you squeeze and makes a honking sound. When up close you can hear him make the cluck, cluck, honk sound but the clucks are faint the honk can be heard for about 300 yards, clearly. He can keep it up for up to 10 minutes!
Not sure why he does this, I thought it was a warning of some sort but when I check I can't find anything. When he is in the goats pen and honks the goats run up the hill with their tails high in the air as if on alert. The young hens run away as fast as they can. I've also noticed the geese take notice. This is not new and was wondering if anyone know why he does this.
