What age do roosters start mounting hens? and to crow? mine is 5 months and still does neither.
There is no specific age when roosters began to do these things. Really just whenever their hormones kick in. But this is a place to post online poultry shows. Although nobody will be able to tell you specifically when this will start they can give you more insight. There is a forum specifically for chicken behavior named "chicken behavior and egglaying". Good luck and welcome to BYC
Whenever they feel like there're ready for the big moment..
about 7 months
There is not way you can tell that. I have birds crow at 3 weeks (at least I didnt have to wait 2 more weeks to sex) and ones not crow until they were 13 months. Each individual bird develops at its own rate. Its like saying a kid will start talking at about a year old. So talk sooner some talk later. As Vamvakas said, when they are good and ready. The more you raise the more you see this come true.
well said.. and very true.
it very much depends when his hormones kick in this RIR cockerel was mounting the younger pullets when he was still chirping but didn't crow until he was about 6 months old!
well It depends on the type of rooster
wow thats a mighty little cockerel
