    I think it depends on the breed. Our Golden Campine first crowed at 5 weeks and our Single Comb Brown Leghorn didn't crow until he was 10 weeks old.

    My RIR roo started crowing at about 10 weeks...Couln't call it much of a crow, more like a croak. At 15 weeks he's got the hang of it, and he's chasing the ladies around the yard.
