    He is over a year old now and he has not crowed yet. Think he is a mute? I have to other roos with him and one crows loud and the other crows softly

    See if the trait is passed along to his offspring. You'll make a fortune with urban chicken keepers. [​IMG]

    If you were close, I'd offer to trade a VERY loud roo for your mute one!!

    It's possible that he'll start to crow when the other two leave.
