Dark Brahma Roo not acting like one..

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by matthewschickens, Aug 21, 2010.

  1. We got a Dark Brahma Roo from Murray McMurray a while back. I am 100% sure he is a roo! But yet he is not crowing or mating or anything! 2 other Red Star roos came with him and they started that kind of thing a few months back! They are gone now so he is in charge but the ONLY rooish thing I have seen him do is when I hen called for help he ran over to her. But that is all! Is something wrong? He's a good boy but if he doesn't do anything I don't know if I will keep him.

    Thanks!

    Brahma's can be pretty late to mature so I think that is all [​IMG]

    Brahmas are very slow to mature especially the roosters. Hen usually won't lay til 6 or 7 months. I say he will be fine, just slow getting his act together!
