OK, I still have two iffy young chickens - an EE (11.5 weeks) and a BR (10.5 weeks). I'll post pictures again when I get a new camera. The old camera just broke. I know that it is about time that these chickens could start crowing, if they are males. If they start crowing, dare I ask whether there is a "usual" time for them to crow? My bedroom is on the far side of the house from the chicken coop, and I am a sound-sleeping night owl. I am not up at dawn. I know I have friends who have chickens, and they seem to crow in the middle of the night (2-3 am). Is dawn really the most likely time? Are they likely to crow at other times, too, when they are first getting started? I have my earlier-rising neighbors keeping an ear out for me, too.
