    19 week old Black Australorp chickens. No crowing and no eggs

    Hi I am new here and to chickens. I am raising my first flock of 20 Black Australorp chickens. They will be 19 weeks old on Tuesday. So far I don't have any eggs and have not heard any crowing. If I have any roosters should they have already starting crowing? Also is it normal for Australorps...

    Accidental rooster (who we love) - need help with crowing please 😊

    We ended up with a rooster in our little group of pullets we bought earlier this spring. He is the absolute SWEETEST thing in the world and we love him but our neighbors aren’t thrilled with his crowing. I’ve thought about putting a fan in their coop and closing the windows overnight so he...

    Stop bantam from crowing

    I have a bantam rooster (bantams are a lot smaller then regular hens) and we have crowing collars but he keeps taking it off. Also it is hard to get it to the bottom of his neck and when we do it has to be big to stay on and he loosens it and gets it over his head. Do you have any suggestions to...

    My New Rooster Doesn’t Crow at All

    I just bought a rooster to add to my flock of hens. I have 12 hens black australorp, araucana, and white leghorn. The rooster is an Orpington mix. I kept him apart from my flock for a few days, but now he’s integrated. He’s very nice and lets me just walk over and pick him up. He’s between 8...

    Orpington maturity rate??

    Hi everyone, I have a bit of a weird question. I was wondering if Orpingtons take longer to mature than other breeds or not??? Like in terms of mating, crowing, etc. Because I have a 5 month old Lavender Orpington cockerel and he’s HUGE size wise but he still hasn’t done any of that stuff. In...

    Are Sultan Roosters Loud?

    I have a sultan rooster who’s getting close to a year now. He is very lax and shows hardly any rooster tendencies. He doesn’t do anything to the girls and hasn’t crowed at all. I knew sultans were slow developing, but I never expected it to be this slow. I’m lucky he’s not a yeller, but also...

    Non-Emergent: Cockeral Wheezes after Crowing

    I feel sort of guilty posting this when others have much more urgent problems, but I'll do it anyway. My eight month old silkie rooster, Peter, wheezes after he crows. I'm not sure, but I think this is new. I noticed it yesterday morning, because he crowed several times. He crows, then sharply...

    How Humane Are No-Crow Rooster Collars?

    Hi all! So I recently got a 5 month old Rhode Island Red mix rooster named Harvey from a local rescue. He’s an absolute sweetheart, very nice and not aggressive. But he crows, without fail, at the crack of dawn every morning. He’s fairly quiet the rest of the day though. We’ve been looking in...

    Rooster crowing with beak closed

    We currently have 3 little roos that we were planning to re-home/sell or take to the auction when they're a bit bigger. The handsome cream boy is only 6wks old and just learning to crow but so far he keeps his beak closed and it's the most adorable muffled crow. I'm assuming he'll learn to open...

    Anyone try to sound proof the coop?

    Like maybe putting cork up on the inside. My Serama roos start crowing at about 6-6:30am which means they will have to be brought into the house every night until I can rehome them.
