    My Old English Game bantam started crowing about a week ago. He is a month and a half old. My leghorn mix just started to crow- he was born this spring.

    I had one crowing at 2 weeks. I had it in the house and know for a fact that it was crowing, pittiful crow, but a crow none the less! This was a marans. Typically, these guys are crowing around 4 to 6 weeks of age.

    My marans tend to crow super young and my delawares tend to crow way late. My Speckled Sussex started crowing around 15 weeks of age. My leghorns were crowing a few weeks before that....
