    That would be about the right age for most roos. Mine all started crowing around that time.

    Mine sounded like a rusty door hinge when he started. [​IMG] Yours sound about the right age. And, as stated, it just gets louder, and more frequent. Morning, afternoon, evening, nighttime, when the phase of the moon changes, sunspots, lack of sunspots.... [​IMG] I love a good crower!

    Mine just started trying to crow yesterday at just 6 weeks! He sounds like a car that failed to start and coughed instead, it was hilarious. I hope I didn't hurt his feelings by laughing at him.

    I'm freaking out after reading this post. I have 5 or so baby roo's that I don't know what to do with and they are 4 weeks old...I remember my Adult RIR rooster was closer to 5 months before I heard the first crow.
