Ive hatched out a white orpington, hes about 8 weeks old. Unfortunately we live on an estate so if he crows he goes. At what age should he start to crow? Ive got 3 hybrids, they hate the poor little fellow. Ive had him roaming around put him in with them at night and let them all out together in the morning but they just keep pulling out his feathers. Thankfully our greiveing dog Mary has taken pity on him so she protects Steve (cockeral) while they roam. Anything that I can do to make a more harmonious flock?
