    2 days ago I had a 1 week old trying to crow (too cute) and then my 11 week old crowed for the first time yesterday. Guess he didn't want to be showed up [​IMG]
    Good luck with your boy

    I've got one that is almost 3 months old and is starting to crow, kind of pathetic sounding, but he's trying!! [​IMG]

    Quote:Congrats on your rooster crowing!! Hope you enjoy your tasty chicken next Saturday!! I remember last year when we had our chickens processed for the first time...it took a bit for my kids to get over the fact that they we our chickens we were eating...now they have realized just how much better they taste over store boughten chicken. Nothing like home raised chickens!!! [​IMG]
    Nice to see someone else with lots of kids!!! [​IMG]

    I've had them start as early as 6 weeks, as late as 20 weeks... it just depends on them. [​IMG]
