    ...will he ever shut up?? [​IMG]

    He's 19 weeks old, been crowing a few weeks now and he doesn't let up. From 5:00 in the morning 'til sundown.
    I'm wondering, why do they crow?
    Dominance, territory, girls???

    I have two roosters, the dominique and the blue laced red wyandotte. The dominique is already getting his spurs and is quite the ladies man, and he's just now getting aggressive with people (the kid who works for us.)
    The BLRW is not as mature (even though they are the same age) and he's crowing, but in the morning when you expect it. Not all day long. He's just starting to like girls ([​IMG]) and barely has any spurs yet. He's a sweetie, not aggressive at all.

    So...will Nicky ever shut up, or is this how he's going to act from now on?
