    How old are roosters when they start to crow? I have a porcelain d'uccle that hasnt crowed yet and I think he is at least 2 months.

    All the roosters I've had have started between 16-17 weeks though I have heard of them attempting it younger than that. It just varies a lot.

    I've got an EE boy that started crowing at about 8 weeks.
