I have a 20 week old Dominique rooster. He has begun to make crowing-like noises. He's not consistent as of yet, and even seems puzzled that he's making such noises. But I'm pretty sure he'll soon gain confidence and let 'er rip! I hope he will also begin to move up the ranks in the pecking order. He is currently sitting at #5 out of 6 chickens, he being the only roo. He protects the hen who is last in pecking order. I'm so glad to see that!
