    I have a 10 week old barnyard mix that has already begin to crow. Kinda seems early. It is quite the manly crow I might add.

    I have 8 right now. They didn't start crowing until 12 weeks or so, but I have one that goes off around midnight---I only need 2-3 roos so as soon as I figure out who it is......
