    I have found the barred rock's to be super early crowers; like six weeks. Little teensy baby crows.

    That's interesting to know, thanks. I'll listen for mine to do it, just in case the 1 is a roo.

    Most start from 6-12 weeks depending on the cockerel or breed. It's normal to hear a screech and see young pullets getting "covered" by 8-10 weeks range. That will also help to look for cockerels
