    I have a BO Cockeral, 16 weeks old, that has no crow. He stretches his neck, opens his mouth and nothing. No sound at all. Has anyone heard of this? Will it last?

    Well does he make any other sounds? If so, he's just practicing.

    No, he doesn't make any other sounds. He is silent. It is very strange to watch him strut around and open his mouth with no sound.
