    I have heard of some 2 week old cockerels crowing.. or no crowing until they are months old! Good luck! Why don't you host a photo on a photo sharing site (ie. photobucket) and see if we agree with your diagnosis! [​IMG] Welcome!

    My new chicks started crowing just before two months. However, that said my favorite roo refused to crow until he was about 6+ months old, by then we knew he was a roo. It just depends on their personality.
