    I still have 10 OE bantams inside the house just 'cause I think they're cute.... Well, I have heard a noise coming from their direction several times. This morning I caught this 4.5 wk. old fella in the act. He was crowing! Isn't he a bit young? :confused: .

    I think banties are precocious and develop faster
