I have a 13 week old cockerel who hasn't crowed yet. Is this normal?
Mine did not crow till he was 6 months.
Give 'm time... and you'll have crowing. Mine didn't start until he was well past 6 mos... and then you can't git'm to stop. Enjoy the silence while it lasts.
i dont know if this is true, but i heard that they need someone to listen to to learn from.
.... is there another one around?
Mine doesn't crow yet, either. Not that I am waiting with baited breath or anything.
Quote:My friend had a "pullet" that turned out to not be, one day he started crowing! Imagine her surprise. She had no other rooster than him. (a.k.a flappin Bob.)
Quote:There isn't! It is our first time raising chickens. Thank you!
I have one that crows every second on the second. Enjoy your peace while you can!
It will crow in it's own time. 13 is still young. I've had cockerals crow at 6 week (try to crow)
and others waited until 30.
Roosters do not need to be taught. It is instinctive.
Crowing is also done on the pecking order. We have had many a rooster that
didn't crow until we culled or rehomed the alpha roos.
They crow when they want to. He will when his time comes.
