    I have five roosters, they are all 16 weeks old. Only one of them crows, is this because he is the dominant one or will they all start crowing eventually?

    I think they all should crow, though one will crow more than the others, and might even fight... have 2 and they both crow, but only one gets to take care of the "ladies' duties" [​IMG]

    I have 3 roos/3 hens. The #1 Roo has crowed the longest, they are all 19 weeks old. The #2 roo crows a little less often, the #3 roo even less. But some days, like today, they all are crowing, my son calls it a crowing party lol

    When I had two brahma roosters, only the alpha crowed. The other, my now alpha, didn't start crowing until I re-homed his brother. Now I have two roos of different ages, seperate coops, seperate areas. They have crowing contests.
