    My big boy is around six months old, and I still haven't heard any crowing yet?
    When do they start crowing?
    The neighbour's roo is very noisy, could that be connected?
    Or have I just got a quiet one?

    My EE roo has not made one peep , not one noise that resembles a crow . He's 20 weeks and the only noise he makes is a "mumble" noise to the girls . Almost like he's whispering. Never saw him mate any either yet I have fertilized eggs.... go figure! Some just fly under the radar.

    I have 2 roos. One started crowing when he was 11 weeks, the other didn't until he was around 6 months. My guess is he will crow sooner or later.

    :cool:Believe it or not, I have a pullet that has been crowing since she-yes I said SHE-has been crowing since she was 3 weeks old. I've told this story before and even I couldn't believe it myself. You can see a picture of her on my uploads. I got her from TSC when I got my first chicks a month or so ago. She was in the Americauna chicks bin but I knew she wasn''t of that breed. She looks like a barred pullet and she is much bigger than the Americaunas now. When I got my 2 year old Japanese bantams she attacked the roo and his mate(especially his mate) until one day last week when the roo whooped her fuzzy butt a couple of times. Now they all roost together at night and she no longer crows. Morning everyone from Conroe, Texas.
