    How old are cockerals when they start to crow? I have 10 light brahmas that are around 10 weeks old and I am wondering when the boys will start to try crowing.

    My NHRs were 14 -16 weeks before they began to crow, although the first one kind of intimated the others a bit, when I re-homed him, the other two really got to going.
