I have a 2 month old supposed rooster ( see my thread on sexing my EE. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/716816/ee-chicks-3-weeks-old-pictures see second page for updated picture ) he has not crowed nor tried the love dance. At what age do they crow and get in the mood to mate? He/she is in a coop/ pen with 8 girls and one 12 week old sister. He/she is pretty shy and tends to only stick with his sister or mom. ( raised him from an egg )the bird is young I know but if he was a rooster shouldn'tt he begin crowing? Will he crow first before mating? Sure would be nice to have a rooster who did not crow lol.
