    No real set age that I have ever noticed, seems every bird decides to do it when he feels like it...lol

    Earliest I've had was five DAYS, latest was 15 weeks, at least among my own flock.

    My white rock crowed at 9 Months. Then has only 3 times after that because my older roo showed him who owns the coop!

    all my roos were hatched on November 1st.

    They are about 22 weeks old. No signs of crowing although the orpington roo is trying to "rooster" one of the older girls.

    In the past few days he has started to run up to them with his head really low to the ground.

    The light sussex roos, the same age just look at him. I think they are gay. No rooster activity from them.
