    He is definitely at the age to start crowing.

    I agree with KatieBugg. My RIR rooster started crowing when he was 4 months old. Your rooster is at just the right age! Some roosters start growing earlier or later than others. It's the same as humans. Some young children learn to talk/walk at different ages [​IMG]
    I bet your little roosters grow is adorable. When my 8 month old RIR started growing 4 months ago, it wasn't very good, but it sound cute! He wouldn't crow in front of me at first. It was almost like he was embarrassed. Now he likes to compete with his daddy over who has the best crow.

    That's how my rooster started out. At first he could only get out the first part of a crow. The more he tried, the better he got. It takes time. Soon you will have an amazing crower!
