    Mine started crowing at about 5 weeks.......

    I think it depends on the chick itself....mine is Mr Hormones, bad attitude, overprotective, aggressive....he crowed early and crows often....

    I have a 16 week EE who hasn't figured out the crowing part yet. I'm being particuarly careful to not mention it, in hopes that maybe it won't occur to him.
