    Ones in question are the white colored birds they bow up at each other and the rest of the birds mainly the darker white one. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Theyre a couple months old now would they be trying to crow yet? Neither one makes a sound so far

    Depends. I've had roos crow at 3 months and some not until 8 months

    Yep, both cockerels. Red Patches of Death on the wings tell the tale.

    Yep they were both roos!!! But i gave one away to a good home and the other i made a no crow collar so i can keep him. It's working great he loves his hens and acts like he always did he still crows but after 20 feet you can barely hear him. Glad i was able to keep him.
