Is there an approximate age they start trying to crow??
Mine did around 12 weeks, but I had a meat bird that crowed at 3 weeks!
How old are your chickens?
My polish crowed at 17 wks., but I've heard that some roosters don't crow for a whole year.
Thankxs DangerousChicken. Now that I look around on this site, it seems they can start crowing anytime from early age to late
Six weeks, the latest one.
I have 2 that are...at about 11 weeks the first one started...then the 2nd at about 12 weeks...but then my other 3 haven't yet that I know of...
Obviously from all the prior posts it can occur at any time. Two of my 6 month olds started the same week. The other two haven't started yet and they are close to 7 months already.
Thanks everybody. I wonder what determines when they start??? I can't wait for my little guy to crow.
My little banty EE just started crowing two days ago, he is 11 wks. He is trying really hard, but it is not sounding good. The first time I heard it, I ran full speed down to the coop in a panick. It sounded like something was dieing. Hopefully it will get better with time....I have another rooster that still has crowed.
I have 2 roosters, neither one crows yet. I wish they would get on with it!! One is about 4 months and the other 3 weeks behind him. The older one is a partridge cochin , the younger a Delaware Blue. I want crowing!!!
