    Hi Everyone
    After some info on the general age that roosters start to crow.
    My girlfriend has a clutch of 9 baby bantams. They are currently about six weeks old and starting to get their feathers.
    4 or five of these little critters have started crowing when they hear her two other older boys crowing.
    Is this normal or are they super young and just very vocal?
    Thanks
    Edwena

    It is uncommon for males to crow that early, but certainly not unheard of.

    It’s a bit less heard of but happens. My bantam too started around 9 weeks old.
