    They are americana, but I am thinking that they are young for their behavior. What do you think?

    Quote:Some birds mature faster than others, generally they wait until at least 5-6 months. But- I had American game that was trying to breed full grown hens at two and half months. I didn't hear him crow until about a month later if I recall correctly.
