I wait and wait to hear that familiar sound... but nothing yet. And as i write this i think, " it's gonna be tomorrow". My roo is so beautiful with full green shimmery tail feathers, shiny sickle feathers and a big ol' spikey comb... but not a peep! He has even "mated" with my hens ( who refuse to start laying any eggs yet at 26 weeks old)!! I wonder how long this can go on before he crows? He is giant and completely "male", maybe he's just content?
