approx 4-5 month's of age
Does anyone have guesses
Cockerel in first and third pictures - cockerel and two hens in middle picture.
Are you asking about the dark bird in all three photos? If so, that is 100% cockerel.
when do males start crowing
Looks like a cockerel to me, if you're talking about the dark bird. Age of crowing varies from bird to bird. Some breeds take months to mature and won't crow until they are over five months old. Others start crowing at 6 weeks old or sooner.
I agree with sourland on the genders.
Male chickens typically start crowing at 4-5 months, however there are always exceptions. Some have been known to crow as early as 2 months and others have not crowed until they were nearly a year old.
I've had bantam cockerels crow while still in the brooder, and large fowl cockerels that did not crow until nearly a year old.
