Hello all, I have a blue lace RW rooster who is about 20 weeks old. We hatched him and kept him in the house til about 14 - 16 weeks of age. He had a hen in here with him. While in the house, he began crowing w/o provocation or noise from us. I loved it! Well, we put him out in the coop with the others (older than he) after slowly introducing them. He and the hen were "put in their place" by two RIR's and an easter egger. He hasn't crowed since he's gone outside. :^( He has begun to "service" the hens, and is coming into his own as far as becoming more independent. He still gets pecked a bit by the reds, but not as much. My question is, does anyone have a similar experience as this? Whats the chance he'll begin crowing again? I have no other rooster and we have five hens. Also, I had searched a bit but found nothing similar, so I figured I'd ask the brain-trust! I truly appreciate any thought/input you may have. Floyd T.
