    Why would my 2 roosters not crow?
    They are healthy and full grown.

    Thanks

    Brahmas take much longer to mature and grow. They can still be growing at 18 months of age, they will crow and very loudly-big lungs! [​IMG]

    So this is a normal thing for them not to crow yet?
    I didnt realize they were even roos until i was browsing through photos, my bad. They are beautiful tho i must say!

    Quote:Yes, perfectly normal. I have some Penedesencas (mediterranean) which typically mature faster, hatched in April and they just starting crowing this week.

    They're pretty young yet. Most of my roos have crowed around the 4-4 1/2 month mark, but as a PP said, Brahma's mature more slowly.
