Thank you for any input, much appreciated!
I typed that question into the BYC search box and some old threads where that was discussed popped up. Happy reading. Here you go: https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=When+do+roosters+start+crowing
Cockerels can start to crow as early as a couple weeks old. I had one crow at six weeks. He was mounting his brooder mates at ten weeks.
Most cockerels start crowing around six months, but some don't crow at all if there's an adult rooster already in charge of the flock.
I have a ameraucana cockerel who is 7 weeks old and started trying to crow a week ago he still isnt a super loud full on crower but he is working on it
I've had young cockerels crow anywhere from 3 weeks (Old English Game Bantams and crested cream legbars) to over 8 months. That is one way of sexing them if they crow early.
Our roo started crowing around 6 months but maybe more
About 17-18 weeks. Doesn't stop from at least 5am to 9am. Crow after crow, no breaks.
The wife calls him, dead rooster walking.
I get a wide range, some early some late... my bantams *usually* start earlier than my lf, 3 to 4 weeks sometimes...
But I did get one that was a huge surprise... 6 days old...
