I have a rooster that is about 6-7 months old and hasn’t made a sound, doesn’t crow or even talk to other chickens. He is mounting the hens though. Has anyone ever had one that was silent?
There are other chickens down the road from us but I never hear a rooster but there could be one. I just think he has no voice box or something. He sticks with just the five chicks that were hatched that month that I put together in a “holding coop” next to main coop until they were big enough to fend for themselves like I do all chicks before I merge them. He has been the strangest by far.That is just odd, I have had roosters that crowed just a couple of times a day to ones that just never gave it up. I have had chick cockerels, and like you, they were vocal early. It is just odd.
