I heard the oddest noise this morning. I thought I was hearing things.... My Little Boy was crowing, and what a beautiful cock-a-doode-doo he has! I can't believe it! I read that most roosters don't crow until they are 3 or 4 months old!! He's not even 10 weeks. None of his Leghorn brothers are crowing yet, and they are much larger in size. What a fun little boy this chick is! I dread my SO finding out he's crowing already. My So hates the sound of a rooster crowing. Well, I guess there's no doubt he's a boy, now! LOL!!! And he didn't even need to practice his crowing. It came out perfect the first time! What a lovely Christmas present!! There's nothing sweeter than the sound of a rooster crowing!!! People in another thread suspect his Mama was a Buff Orpington and his Papa a Silver-Laced Sebright Bantam. They tell me the genetic dominant color of Orpingtons is chocolate and when crossed with the black of a Silver-Laced Sebright, the result is Khaki coloration, which appears to be blue. Do Bantam roosters tend to crow before other types of roosters???? Is early crowing a bad sign of a disease or problem?
