    He looks like a Black Sex-link or other Barred Rock mix to me. Most roosters are crowing by this age, but some are slower to mature and take longer to start crowing.

    Your bird's tail should curve at least a little more than it does currently. However, it is impossible to know whether the curve will be exactly like the roosters in the photos you posted.
