    Hi,
    I have three, three week old chicks and I'm almost certain I have a least 1 roo. I wanted to know a little bit more about them.

    Can anyone answer these questions?:

    1. When do roosters start crowing?

    2. What age can you be certain that they are a rooster (from signs)?

    3. When do they start to fertilize the eggs?

    4. If I have 2 roosters, will they fight?

    Thanks

    1 usually in 3 or 4 months.
    2 usually about 4 or 6 weeks by there combs thers will grow real fast and hens won't.
    3 Between 4 and 6 months.
    4 Mine have never fought if they are brothers or have been together while they were younge.
    Hope that should help you.
