appreciating the long crow roosters

Ok, I'm officially relieved at the comparative subtelty of the sounds our chickens make in the backyard.

Take a moment to feast your eyes and ears on this long crow rooster video:

What a pair of lungs! Would you believe a rooster that's guaranteed to crow at least 15 seconds can fetch up to $1,500 in Japan?

You can read more about how the Japanese Toumaru breed made its way to the US at the Long Crowers web site.

That is so cool! I have half a mind to buy one for my nieghbor who told me she wished I had roosters so she could listen to them crow in the morning. (Yes, one of my neighbors acutally said that to me!)
