    Does anyone know about what age these roosters start crowing? I have a sweet boy that I've affectionately named Foghorn, and he's pretty quiet. He has been since I got him. He's about eleven weeks old, and he's never made a sound, not even a peep.

    Many breeds of roosters won't crow until 3-7 months of age depending on the other flock mates and the individual personality of the rooster.
