    I bought some eggs off ebay around 2 or 3 months ago... Well they hatched on mothers day (which was surprising seeing as they were 18 days incubated) Now I have ten chicken and they are 9 weeks old. I am able to tell the facial features of the males (I have four roo's) and they are all trying to crow but only when I let them out of coop or get close to the coop.....Its really soft crows, seeing as I never had chickens I don't know what to really expect.....and should I separate the roo's from the hen's by now? so yea any advice would be extremely helpful.[​IMG]

    Usually at 4-6 months old. But some can start at two, and some don't until eight or nine. So it depends. Do you know what breed he is? [​IMG]
