My suspected Silkie roosters are starting to crow already! They are only 14 weeks old! I thought I had a lot more time than 14 weeks with them. I have to get rid of the Silkie roosters so I'm really sad. I have to give them away next week. My parents said they saw all of the suspected roos crow this morning. Four of them. 14 weeks.. I always thought they didn't start crowing until sometimes 5 months! or 8 months! They are like 3 months! Is that abnormal or did anyone else have a batch of Silkies that matured early? I'm just not ready to give them up. Also, does early crowing mean early egg laying? I've heard it takes 5 or 8 months before a Silkie will lay.
