    Today i was out with my two little pekin roosters and I noticed that they have been opening their beaks and moving their tongues. Now they are 11-12 weeks now and they should be starting to crow sometime soon [​IMG] So is this their "first baby steps" (sorry about the pun) towards crowing?

    It's possible. I'd look in their mouths for gapeworms, though. If they're there, you will see them.
