    100% Roo! If you look at his hackle and saddle feathers you can see that they are long and pointy. Well that is a definate sign of roo. Some breeds or just a certain bird will start crowing later. Also he is able to,but he might not feel the need to. Roosters crow to tell everyone that this is there property and noone better challenge that. He might feel very safe that his property will not be messed with therfore has no reason to crow. [​IMG] Just wait till he does, I love roosters crowing. Its just so hommy! I cant stand a day without it.
