Around 7-8 months old, HE was bought as a hen & just started crowing & I can't have Roos where I live! Beautiful dark buff. Nice temperament, gets along well with my 5 hens. No mating behavior yet and only crows around 7:30am for about 20 minutes. Fairly quiet crow but still....... It's been raining so that's why his crown feathers look funky.
