man up and take charge of his hens. It would even be okay if he crowed more than once a day - once a day is it, first thing when I let them out. Yeah his crow is horrible, sounds like a cross between a dying moose and a cat fixin' to urp up a hairball, but I won't stew him just because he has a horrible crow.

He does need to take charge of his hens though. You'd think he'd get tired of daily butt whoopin's. Just now I saw him going at it with my SF hen. He wasn't bothering her, she's just cranky cuz she's molting. She ripped some of his crest feathers out.

Ever had a rooster that didn't man up? He's over four months old now. Even my brahma roos were in charge by that age.

I would give him a little more time. mine had 2 pounds on each hen but didn't man up until he was about 6 or 7 months.
