Hi all - I'm not sure if this is in the correct section, so admins, please feel free to move if necessary... Anyway, I was wondering, what is the average age where roosters start crowing? Reason I ask is, my lavender bantam cochin chick started crowing this morning - well, its actually very squeaky, and he definitely needs practice, but it IS a crow - what I find so odd about that is the fact that he's only 30 days old!!! I have other bantam cochins that range in age from 30 days to 3 months old and this little guy is the first to even attempt crowing. He's very small for his age by comparison, so this was quite unexpected! I heard this noise, and when I went to see what it was, he looked me straight in the eye, struck that roo pose, and gave it everything he had - first, my mouth dropped open, and then I about fell over laughing!!! And he KEPT ON crowing, like 3 or 4 more times! It was just TOO CUTE for words!! So, would this be considered "early crowing"? Or is this normal for bantam cochins?? Thanks so much!
