    When they get ready to. Anywhere from a few weeks old to more than eight months old. Why not post a pic? I'm sure you'll get your answer real quick thataway.

    Yup, the crowing can really happen at any time and depends on the roo. I've had a 2 day old chick belt out a crow and some roos not crow for almost a year. A pic would definitely help.
