My silkie rooster, Monte Muffiano, is 6+ months old and in a flock of four hens and no other roosters. He crowed one singular time a few months ago and that's it. 100% silent. All his siblings and his dad started crowing loudly at two months old. Is it possible that he'll be silent?
He used to tidbit and will do the occasional dance for his favorite hen, Spoons, but that's really it.

My boy, ginger, is 5mo and still no crow from him. He's special though.
Your roo could be affected by his dad and siblings, or he could be a late bloomer.
Could I see him?

My silkie was also a late bloomer no crest or a peep! I gave 3 silkie roos away and kept him since I thought it was a female well he quickly grow his crest and wattles and started crowing at 8 months ohh and also started chasing the ladies!
