My bantams are not quite 2 months old and so far about three out of ten are starting to crow. These are my first bantams. Do they mature faster than LF? I'm starting to think that all 10 are cockerals but I guess it doesn't really matter as long as they can get along!

thanks

Yes.. I have found that they little boys crow earlier, the little girls lay earlier, and I've seen some ungodly young broody pullets hatching eggs!

Ages ago, I had two semi-wild bantams, Leonard and Louise, and Louise disappeared for over a month and I gave her up for lost. Lo and behold, she turned up with nine youngsters! They were half boys, and by two months, they were all learning to crow in the hedge where they all roosted, outside my bedroom window at 3 am.

They sounded like they were hoarse and trying to pass particularly large poos.
