    Lola, an Easter Egger who was supposed to be a girl did his first crowing today !!!! It sounded pretty pathetic and the girls didn't seem to be very impressed [​IMG]
    But Lola aka Larry is beautiful and we are going to keep him as long as he stays nice. I almost ordered an Easter Egger Roo when I ordered the chicks but decided against it because of our two little boys. Maybe it was just meant to be and Larry turns out to be a nice Roo [​IMG]

    Congrats! My Columbian Wyandottes are the same age & I can't wait for the roos to crow. I have two, one I ordered & one that slipped in! Most any roo I have had has crowed at 12 weeks and they will be that on Monday!!! Here's hoping mine aren't far behind. Have fun.

    I too have just discovered that I have not one but two Roo's... Pearl is now Earl and Gurtie is Cocky.. Earl is very vocal but I have not heard Cocky yet.
    I am still trying to figure out what to do. I really just wanted hens... and I cannot have a rooster so I went from 6 hens.. lost one to neighbors dog, week ago. and now down to
    my three hens... I am reading up on introducing new hens to my brood... they are going on 20 weeks... EE. I am quite attached and do not want to to seperate the group or make a decision as to which to keep an such.. this is my first time chicken raising...still getting my head around this!
