    Ok thanks for the replies! You wouldn't believe how hard we've been trying to get a boy! A flock off 23 all raised by at home and they were all girls! I finally decided to go out and adopt from someone with too many roosters. Any idea when he will crow? I'm expecting any day now.

    He probably hasn't crowed because he was in with a bunch of other roosters and wasn't high on the pecking order. Once he gets comfortable and finds his place in your flock, I'm sure you probably won't be able to make him stop!

    We have 4 hens his age and he's always running off with them when it comes time to free range. He and the younger hens are still afraid of the full grown flock. He's very handsome we can't wait to see what he'll look like when he fills out.
