Yep, he's a rooster.

If you have older roosters, he may be staying quiet so he doesn't get his butt kicked. Crowing can be seen as a challenge by an older bird. Some younger males in a flock with older males keep quiet a lot longer than they would on their own.

They are all the same age but he is the smallest in the group so I can see that. :)
