    Hi everyone. Just got my first flock today they are 4-5 weeks old. I got 3 rir and 3 buffs. Pretty sure all but one are pullets. One buff has a very pink comb thats pretty fleshy already. About what age do they start crowing?

    Right now I see one male but its hard to see the two dark ones.

    I have had some crow as early as about 5 weeks and others wait until nearly 5 months.

    Yes I knew at least that middle buff was a roo. Thats good to know they could crow at any time! I didnt think they started that young. Thankfully I'm in the country so I can keep them even of roos. :)
