Mine just started. he is four months old. Cochin X something.
Correction. I have a blue legged Golden Penciled Hamberg. (I found it last night). Boy did my kids like the name of that...
Yesterday morning I heard a horrible noise coming from the brooder, and thought somebody was dying, so I ran into the room and found the runt among my 4-week-old Welsummers attempting to crow. The others were looking at him like he was crazy.
Mine are around 10 weeks, I have 14 dark brahmas and they do not crow yet. I guess it all depends on the bird. I looked on YouTube and played them a rooster crowing on my iPhone, and it seemed to freak them out! They all ran and hid. I guess they were startled by "the other rooster"
I have some SLW from TSC they are 5 weeks old and I'm sure I heard a crow about 5:30 this morning. Probably the one that has been challenging me for the last week. I know who's going to be Sunday dinner 1st.
I don't know how old he was, but there was a darling roo at the swap I went to Saturday that reminded me of a teenage boy with a "cracking" voice. The poor little thing kept trying to crow, but all that would come out was "squeak-a-doodle-squeak"!
Quote:Crowing at 1:30 am??? Please no! My roo is 4 weeks and no crowing yet, but I am sure it is coming!
My boys are 7 weeks old~ and I am hoping they are gender confused and never crow!!! They are the sweetest chickens ever~ more friendly than my female If they start crowing I'll have to give them up Unless I can keep atleast one of them maybe indoors? You think the neighbors would hear the noise from in the house? Haha Nah~ Then with my luck my parrot would learn to crow and that would just be complete madness!
Dunno about local ordinances, but believe neighbors within x number of feet from where chickens live may lodge a complaint. Our strategy, bringing in a new rooster on purpose, is to give eggs to our neighbors occasionally. Start before the crowing begins!
I know this is an old post but I just saw it! I have a 9 week old Bantam that crowed for the first time on Sunday,and she/he was born on April 1 also!! I am really hoping she is a roo. Her name is Cinderella but will be changed to Prince Charming if she is a he!
