    Give them a couple of more weeks. They should start crowing about the time your girls will start laying.

    My RIR is 4 days shy of 24 weeks and he is just starting to get that scratchy crow but he is already breeding my hens. By the way that's him in my hand on my icon the day he hatched.

    My EE roo is 17 -18 weeks old, He crowed
    once about 4 weeks ago and we haven't heard
    him since. DH says to just wait! He'll come along.
