    My 8 week old EE has been crowing for about a week and it is so funny.

    I just love those first crowing attempts. I cheer my boys on, telling them what good crowers they are (I lie) and REALLY cheer once one of 'em makes it to a real, honest-to-goodness, Big Boy crow!

    Quote:My roos usually start crowing at 16 or more weeks I raise RIR's, BR, EE, Delaware, and Welsummers and I haven't ever heard one crow that young, I'm currently growing EE's, Welsummers, and Delawares. My 5 EE's are 8 weeks and 2 are Roos I think. Out of my 12 8 week old Welsummers I have 2 Roos, and my 26 4 week old Delawares there are 2 Roos(I ordered these from Cackle sexed). No crows yet and I hope it stays this way for a while!
