    Has he been doing it constantly or every once in a while? I sometimes hear my birds at that age crow, (the funniest have got to be the Cornish Cross rooster crowing)

    You read my mind. I have 2 chicks that hatch 12/31/14 and they are living in a paypen in my living room I swear I heard one crow this morning.

    I believe donrae was responding to the question of "isn't it too early" - because, if the bird is crowing it is "apparently not" too early

    Not too early.

    We have often had two week old Black Copper Marans crow, they did it usually in the mornings. They will usually stop for awhile and start up again around two months old.

    Yep, was responding to the OP. Generally, if you're not responding to the OP in a thread, you quote the person you're responding to, to avoid confusion. Otherwise, just assume responses are to the OP.
