    I have 15 twelve week old chickens in my coop outside. I haven't heard any crowing as of yet and I have 1, possible 2, roos. However, I haven't heard the first crow. Are they still too young? Do I have quiet roosters? lol Or do they all crow at different times. How long do I wait, wondering who's gonna crow? Thanks!

    A rooster crows when he's ready to crow, could be as early as a few weeks old or he could wait till he's closer to a year old to crow. Roos are roos. [​IMG]
