so yesterday I saw my 8 week old black broiler mount one of the white broilers(twice his size). Today I heard him crow. What the hey hey! Has anyone experienced this at 8 weeks? Or do I have a freak of nature in my flock?

I had a teeny little rooster (very very young) that I had inside with a rabbit. In the morning I thought he had been wounded, due to a terrible, raspy honking. I went to the pen and he was crowing, with a full rooster pose! :) He never crowed again, as he was put outside the next day in the presence of larger roosters four times his size. They got along but he may have been a scaredy-bird.

You have a real stud! if you want to breed your own broilers you have the right rooster for it. With 2 different Hybrid of meat birds if you might be able to cross them and get even an even better meat bird with even more Hybrid Vigor.
