    I don't know if it's normal, but mine have started that young, and that's around the age they can be visually sexed.

    They can crow that soon. I usually don't get crowing until 5-6 weeks for some reason.

    Quote:my last clutch is about 6 1/2 weeks and i got 3 males in there(out of 11 birds total) that won't STFU! non-stop all day crowing like crazy. The females just started to lay so i said "meh why not" and put them on the racks for incubation as well, probably won't get anything but w/e..

    They are all outside now so i got 6 males total, 5 of them just blabber back day and night(till the lights turn off). Which is not good for me considering i have HOA rules about farm animals <_<...good thing i can always say they arn't farm animals, they are gamebirds.
