    I had four birds separated from the rest of my girls because I got them from a different place than the rest of my chickens.Well the one of them that looks like a rooster is now about 13 weeks old if the initial age I was told is correct. While he was seperated I heard him try to crow one morning. After about a month of isolation I added him and the others in with my other pullets, thats been about 3 weeks now and I have not heard him try to crow anymore. The others are a bit larger than him and have not totally become accustomed to him. maybe he's not at home enough yet to crow what do my fellow chicken enthusiasts out there think?

    Some of my roos started crowing around 13 or 14 weeks. I have some now at 16 weeks that still haven't even tried to crow. I think you may be right, he may not feel comfortable enough around the other birds yet to crow.
