I have a cuckoo muran that I was told was a rooster when I got him. He should be about 7-8 months old now, he has matured I believe since his comb and wattles have grown alot this past month and turned bright red. Only he does not crow (not complaining about that part) nor does he "service" the hens or act protective of them. He just kind of roams around and does his own thing.... I have had a muran hen and can definately tell by looking at him that he isn't a hen, only why doesn't he act like a rooster? My hens do not respect him much, but I think it is because of his lack of demanding respect... or what not... If I didn't know better I would say by his behavior and demeanor that he is a hen. Do I have a defective rooster? How old should he start demonstrating his manliness to the hens?
