Ok, I have 35 hens, 1 Welsummer Roo (Aramis) the boss, 1 Light Brahma Roo (Porthos), and 1 Columbian Wyandotte (Athos). Aramis and Porthos crow (although Porthos was a late bloomer) but he finally got a nice thick crow. Originally he sounded like a WWII blackout siren. Athos has turned out to be a well rounded roo and really mello, but he NEVER has crowed. I have only seen him mate one time. But he is a really good watcher of the hens, always perfectly groomed, and never has a feather picked at, dirty or out of place. So, what do you think, shy, mute or gay? They are all really nice roos and don't fight or cause any problems and not even close to the stew pot which I have had to do before. I'm only curious if anyone else has a totally silent roo?
