    Do you own another rooster or have some very dominant hens? Either of those will keep a cockerel low on the totem pole and there for he will not dare open his beak in fear of getting a whoopin.

    At 5 months he is still pretty young too, he will get his voice before you know it.

    My mom's mixed breed rooster didn't crow until 6 months. No competing rooster around, he was just a late bloomer. He more than made up for it later so don't count yourself lucky just yet.

    We have had countless roosters that are late bloomers, when it comes to their vocals. Don't worry though, he will learn to crow!

    My rooster didn't start crowing until around 10 months or so. I actually have 2 roos and 10 hens and only my EE roo crows (and only when he sees me come outside and wants me to bring them a snack lol). The Buff Brahma roo has yet to crow, unless he is super stealthy and quiet about it. They don't fight and both will take turns mounting the hens so I don't know if it has anything to do with the dominance in my flock. I figure hes just lazy or something.
