    Thank you very much! But why is her "sibling" who is for sure a rooster already mating and trying to crow and this one is not?
     
  4. Definitely cockerel. [​IMG] I've noticed that young roos tend to mature at different rates, so that could be why yours isn't acting typically.

    Cockerels can mature at different rates, but also in the presence of another dominant male hold back some. So if you got rid of his brother, he might step it up more and start crowing etc.
