This one is 4 1/2 months old olive egger and until 3 weeks ago was just like the rest...until one morning (we think it is this one - all rest are pullets) we heard a quiet crow. Anyone care to help me confirm she is a he or vice versa?
Oh man! Then how come he has not crowed sooner???
I was wondering but since it is a copper maran crossed to be an olive egger I didn't know for sure and no crowing either (!) until once 2 weeks ago for a split second and this morning for a literal split second, one time crow! You don't even hear it from 30' away!
Going to need to find a good home for him. He is held daily, doesn't attack anything, is gorgeous with good lines and is a good watcher for the rest of the flock.
Thanks everyone for chiming in! Grateful to have my suspicions confirmed (but why didn't he crow as a chick??)
Thanks, glad to know that. My others started crowing at 6 weeks! We would all be rolling around laughing at them trying to crow!
It was so funny to hear them and worth getting up to have a huge laugh first thing. One would start and then get choked up, another would start strong then die off in the middle and yet another would start off weak and finish strong then trip over himself with pride and joy.
