    I have a SLW rooster that is 14 weeks old that has yet to crow. He is a sweetheart and talks to his girls but there is no crowing. I guess my question is........why hasnt he crowed yet? [​IMG]

    Yes I'm 105% sure he is a roo. His comb and wattles crew out at 6 weeks and his tail feathers have finally started growing in.

    Quote:then he is going to crow, I've had some Roosters start as early as 6 weeks and others start at around 6 months, Just depends. [​IMG]
