    My 10-1/2 week old Ameraucana cockerel has started crowing. Is this normal? He pays no attention to the pullets, who are weeks away from laying.

    PS: I've raised other chickens, but this is my first time with Ameraucanas. No other cockerel/rooster I've had has ever started crowing more than a week before his "sisters" started laying.
