I have 22 babies about 5 months old and not one of my boys have crowed! I know I have a bunch of roo's (thanks to BYC members) but what is wrong with them or is it too early? Some of the hens have started to lay too.
I have two young 11-week-old roos who crow off and on all day long, and they've been doing so since they were around 8 weeks. I guess it's just like the person upthread said - they do it when they're good and ready!
I have two 16 week old roos and a 23 week old roo, and none of them crow regularly. One of them crowed 3x a few weeks ago...and I've heard some odd noises out of them here and there, but no real loud crowing.
I hope they never crow, because I live in a subdivision. Wishful thinking, right?
