I have 4 RIR roos that are 10 weeks old. They all have large combs, wattles, thick legs and green tail feathers. Only one of them crows.....will they all, or just the dominant one? Thanks!

I've had up to 6 roos at once (infact now) and only two crow... last time I had 6 roos only 2 crowed... maybe I'm special tho-

Like Tigeris said, depends on the roos.

My two adults have had daily crowing contests. The three cockerels, 4 months old, (and one does know how to crow), not a peep.

They all will eventually crow just be patient. Just don’t allow too high of a ratio of roosters to hens. Good rule to follow 1 rooster to 7 to 10 or more hens; more hens the better. If you allow to many roosters to exist the hens will suffer terribly not only will egg production decrease, but the hens will be ripped up on their backs from roosters. Not a good thing I know first hand our hens are still trying to feather back after several months.
