    Hi all,

    This is my new Lemon Braham Cockerel I've had him just under a week now, I was told he is 21 weeks old but he has still not crowed, Everywhere i have read says they will usually start to crow around 4 months, Do i just happen to have one with out a voice :)

    Thanks

    Brahmas, especially the well-bred ones, are slower to mature than production breeds. We see folks here quite often with 6 month old birds that aren't crowing yet. They just take longer with all that growing!

    He's going to be a magnificent bird when he's mature [​IMG]
