i have 2 roos (11 weeks old), 1 lakenvelder (he was the free chick from mcmurray hachery) and a dorking, who i ordered for the same reason anyone orders one, the name! anyway... the lakenvelder has been crowing now for almost 2 weeks, but the "dork" only manages to get out a strangled "gaaaack" every once in a blue moon. could it be that the dork is afraid to crow because the lakenvelder has beat him to the punch and has already become "top dog"? or maybe he's just a late bloomer. any thoughts? thanx.
