You're too funny, Allan!! Sometimes they do sound like they're 'screamin' especially the younger roosters that have finally learned they can make a lot of noise :-)!!

You can get a lot more outside the store in the parking lot, Patty (LOL!)!

Don't worry, Marcie, there's no way I'd try to get close to this hen. They can be brutal!!!
