    I a silkie rooster that I've had since a chick. He is now about 6-7 months old and still not crowing. He hardly ever makes noise at all....
    Just wondering if that's normal

    Some roosters are more submissive. He's still a baby yet, give him more time to grow and mature more and he should find his voice.

    Are you sure he is a rooster? As stated above he could be just that submissive he doesn't crow.

    I think he's a rooster too, he probably can't see anything which can interfere with anyone's confidence. Does he have a domed skull or normal skull?

    I didn't know there was a difference. I went out and felt it. Hard to tell with all his head feathers, they are so thick. But I want to say it is domed .

    What's the significance?
