    So after posting pics in Gender forum, it looks like I have a roo....which I can't keep.

    When will they usually start crowing?
    When does his comb get bigger?

    His comb is actually pretty big already but will continue to grow for the next few months. As for crowing....it varies a lot but mine have mostly crowed for the first time around 16-17 weeks.
