    Eventually he will, some take longer than others. I have had some of the same breed that would start many weeks apart. Some start as early as 8 weeks and some as late as 20. Depends on the individual.

    I thought our roo's would NEVER crow and then I heard the most pathetic sound come out of one of them and I thought they were dieing or something...they were just warming up their crow! I think my roos were 4 months old before they crowed...then they didn't shut up!
