    I have 6 hens, 2 guineas and 2 roosters. The hens have been laying eggs now for about 2 months now and all of my flock are about the same age. The 2 roosters "hangout" together while free ranging and have yet to show signs of aggression toward each other. One is a bit larger than the other one. When should I expect to hear the first crowing? [​IMG]

    Anytime now. They will first start with funny sounding attempts. Eventually they will start waking you up.

    Once they start your question will change " When will they stop crowing?" [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It is weird that they do not crow yet, if the hens that are the same age are already laying.

    I have only experience with EE roosters (and one Silkie), but they all crowed before they were 4 months old.

    I guess it just depends.
