    This year i decided to step it up a notch. I now have 14 jubilee orpington . Talk about BIG beautiful birds they are very close to start laying and once they do I will hatch some. I can't wait. I will say these birds are only coming up on 6 months old but HUGE. Also was not sure at first if any were roos or not. Looks like an even split 7 hens 7 roos. The only thing is none of them have made a peep as far as crowing. This baffles me cuz all other young roos I have are crowing all around them. I'm guessing they will crow someday or are they just well behaved quiet birds..

    Welcome to BYC!!

    As far as crowing i think that just depends on the bird lol. i have some banty roos who are 7 months old and dont crow, just make like quiet noises kinda. Luckily for me the Barred Buff takes care of the crowing lol.

    Congrats on your new Jubi Flock, i bet their Pretty!!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    Some breeds mature slower than others. You roosters may just not be mature enough to crow yet. My roosters generally start crowing at about 8 weeks, but some wait for months longer.
