    I've never heard her crow, never seen him try to have his ways with the girls, he's very afraid/submissive of all the others in the coop.

    Looks like a roo. My Showgirl roo crowed but he did not mate the hens.

    He is the one in the back:

    If you would like Elvis to mate you might try placing him separately with a sweet natured hen who is a lower on the pecking order. The roosters (and maybe some hens) higher up on the pecking order may discourage Elvis from even attempting to mate.

    LOL both roos are the lowest in the pecking order. Is it normal for a roo to follow another roo around? Johnny Cash and Elivs are BFFs
