    Actually, I just answered you on your duplicate thread, but as I stated there, the birds in the top pic and the bottom pic are both cockerels.

    Most cockerels begin crowing from 4-5 months, but some of them can take considerably longer (I've especially found this to be true with Orpingtons), and on rare occasions, it can be nearly a year.

    x2, I've had roosters start crowing at 3 weeks, and others at 5 to 6 months.
