I am wondering at what age can you expect to her the little bounder start to crow?
We had one start at 3 weeks, but I'm told thats rare.
Heres a video we took at 3 or 4 weeks old.
Ive heard somewhere around 9-11 weeks. But they all mature differently. Mine just growls and chases right now. He;s about 8 weeks. Once in a while he gives a light Baaaaaaeeeeee as a warning noise.
Quote:Ok, that was just adorable. Totally adorable. He put his whole heart and soul into that squeak!!
My little guy is 7 weeks old, and he crowed today for the first time. The other roosters had didn't crow until they were several months old.
my rhode island red rooster is 11 weeks old and he has been crowing for about 2 weeks now
I had two cockerels for a while. One EE started crowing at 16 weeks, and the other (a BO roo) crowed at 17 weeks, the day after I gave him away to a flock without a roo. So I think it's individual to the roo and situational as well.
Yeah that means about 3 more weeks of silence.
It will be dependant on the bravery of a little roo, I have had some that born and raised together the dominant one started just past a month, and others in with him went a couple months before attempting to crow. I have some together now, that only one does the crowing in the coop, but when let out the younger ones will scramble out the door, and when they feel far enough away from the head roo wiill then crow.
My little roo is 14 weeks old and hasn't made any crowing noises at all.
my roster crowed when it was 1 month old but hes a old english game bantem i don't know if there different in a way or what but boy is he mean.
