When should I expect to hear my silkies crow for the first time?
Seems like the common age is 5 months.
Any cockerel can be very early or very late to start growing. A lot depends on temperament, etc. If a young bird grows up with roosters, the males may NOT crow because to do so the alpha roo will attack them.
Thank you so much for those answers. I guess i just a to wait a bit longer.
G’Day from down under myfluffies Welcome!

Thank you for the welcome. We are just headed into spring here. I have a new flock of silkies. I have so much to learn. I plan on taking the summer to gather information on how to keep them warm through our cold New England weather.
