So we have what we have been thinking for a while now is a cockerel. He looks like one, kinda. Crested neck, tall, thin and he is Protective of our hens. Hes about 7 months now and he has never crowed. Today I caught him dozing off on the porch and he was making a low humming noise. I thought he may be snoring, but then I startled him, he ran and was stilling making the noise. Then I thought he may be practicing his crow? I don't know what to think. He is a strange fella, and seems to be a bit slow and stubborn. His name is Bird Brain, after all.
