    I don't know of a way to train him to crow on command. But i wanted to tell you that he's very pretty. I have a RIR roo that i am very proud of as well.

    You might have to just wait a little while until he's crowing more often....or get your family to listen early in the morning. [​IMG]

    Tell them to wake up earlier lol. [​IMG] Just kidding, he'll crow plenty on his own, I just remember when the rooster I had started to crow, I would ususally hear him in the early morning.
