Crowing at 3 weeks?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Crowing?  CROWING?! How is this possible?  This little Campine was supposed to be a pullet, but man oh man, I think I've got a baby roo here.  And this morning?  He woke us up with what sounded like a cute little crow.

 

What am I gonna do?  Can't keep cute Campine roosters in Denver. Please tell me this is not crowing.  That's supposed to happen at 4-5 months, right?

 

(and please don't judge the background.  They are in our basement, not our kitchen.  : )  )

That sure does look like he's trying to crow, but I'm new to chickens.  Very pretty birds you have there!

I thought I saw a pretty big, red comb? If so, I'm thinking roo. Sorry😟

Watched your video but I didn't even need to wait for the crowing with that big red comb, is a Roo.... He is young to start crowing

OMG, that's so incredibly cute! No, pullets do not crow like that. You have yourself a cockerel, all right!

 

I recently had a chick crow at six weeks, and I thought it was pretty young. He was a cockerel, too. No doubt. He was supposed to be a hatchery-sexed pullet.
