    I have my 5 little almost-5-month-old naked neck cockerels, well not ONE has crowed yet, not a single peep of a crow [​IMG], BUT today I witnessed one of them, the SMALLEST, trying to mount one of the hens today [​IMG]...and is that normal???, I knew they were coming of age..but still, i wanted them to proclaim thier manlyness in loud annoying crows first!

    hmmm, I guess anything's possible. My original alpha roo proclaimed his manliness the same week he started trying to mate the pullets. Maybe yours will start soon.
