    hey i recently added 2 hens and a rooster to my flock of 14 hens and a rooster, the top rooster is 5 years old and the one i integrated is 6 months old they integrated fine there was no fighting between them but he quit crowing, i don't think anything is wrong i was just wondering how come he quit crowing when he was introduced.
