    is this some weird freak of nature or something common ? He was supposed to be a hen. But he/she is all shiny and has a big comb and wattle. He has no spurs, and isn't aggressive. And i was expecting him to be a hen until i saw him today mount on of the girls I have never heard him crow, not once. Not even that teenage awkward growling sound. He's about 6 months old. All my other rooster were crowing after a couple months. He was supposed to be a Welsummer, but he's got feathers on his feet. I have two other roosters, neither is super dominant, both are just docile guys. I've had tons of roosters but never ever had one that hasn't made a single peep. I'd say he's mature , since he's mounting the hens ?

    Don't worry he will crow eventually. At 6 months old, he's still a cockerel, and not a mature rooster yet.

    He will eventually Crow like said above - some roosters crow as chicks and others wont crow until they're over a year old! It varies from rooster to rooster.
