    I have a 23 week old blue cochin roo. I know Cochins take longer to grow. But, how long will it take for this boy to sing for us?

    I can not answer your question but I would love to have a rooster that does not crow. I live in an urban area and I've had to re home a few that made too much noise.

    He'll crow when he takes a mind to. Every roo is different, just like every teenage boy's voice won't change at the same age. [​IMG]
    Whenever I want to make my rooster crow, as if he needed incentive [​IMG] , I play the rooster crowing ringtone on my cell, where he can hear it, but not see me. I'm mean thataway. [​IMG]

    My Cochin crowed at 2 weeks. Be careful what you wish for. [​IMG]
