    (actually, I want a purebred Cream Legbar roo that doesn't crow.)

    (actually, I would love to hear crowing, but my neighbors, alas, notsomuch)

    Anyway, enjoy it while it lasts.

    I used to love hearing my rooster crow! This morning was the first morning he wasn't there. Way too quiet.

    He was a little bantam and the crow was perfect.

    As for the neighbors...they didn't ask how I feel about listening the their dog bark, so I don't ask how they felt about Sambo crowing.

    Do you have any older roosters or is he the only one? Sometimes a younger rooster will not crow as early as he otherwise might, or as much, if there is an older, dominant rooster present.
    Other then that, as Enola said, he'll find his crow one of these days when he's ready.
