    I have a little OEG that just did his first attempt at crowing last night. So freakin cute! Anyways. He's 5 weeks, and he's the only one thats even tried. I have a BR that hasn't even made an attempt, and s/he's going on 12 weeks old? Do some just take a lot longer?

    I had a silkie I hatched crow at 5 weeks. I have roos that are 5 months that dont crow...I think it is an individual thing. [​IMG]

    I have a six week old white leghorn roo that started crowing last week. Up until then, none of my 3 BR roos, who are 12 weeks old, had crowed. Now its a darn competition with all of them!

    I have a rose comb brown leghorn almost 9 weeks and he has been crowing for almost 2 weeks we laugh every time we hear him, he and our adult roo, take turns going back and forth. We also have an EE I'm sure is a roo and she/he isn't crowing at all. They sure are fun!![​IMG]

    My BCM roo started at 7-8 weeks (and so had to be re-homed, no roos where I live). I also had a Blue birchen marans that didn't crow until 5 months old. So it can vary a lot.
