Quiet rooster still young?

Hello! So, I have a rooster that is at least 4 months old (I say at least, because he was already here when I moved in). I don’t know what breed he is, he has red/orange feathers and a green tail. He’s very quiet, he crows a little bit when he sees me and I bring food, but he’s not loud at all, I have another hen that is way louder than him. Also, he doesn’t seem too interested in mating. And I was wondering if he’s still too young and he’ll change his behavior drastically, or in your experience there are roosters that are quieter than others (Voice wise and sexually) and he’s probably the way he is.
I’ll attach a picture taken the 31st of October, I haven’t take any newer pictures.

Not all roosters sound the same, nor act the same.

The only true rule I have found with roosters, is how they act today, is no indication how they will act tomorrow. However, once they get close to a year old, they are a bit more predictable.

Personally, cross your fingers, a lot of people struggle big time with the crow.

Yes, I think he will become more sexually active, the pictures you have show a very young cockerel.

Thank you guys! I’m still not sure when they are fully grown but I’ll keep it in mind. Let’s see how he turns out. If he he’s too.. ahem passionate and hurts the girls I’ll probably give him away, where I live I won’t have any problems. But I’d actually like to keep him because boys are very beautiful. ^_^
