    To answer your question - don't worry about him not crowing. He will, sooner or later - just enjoy the peace, for the time being :)

    I think he just might be a quiet boy. I have 2 white leghorn cockerels that will be 10 weeks tomorrow and they've been crowing since before 4 weeks of age.

    I'd say it's almost impossible for anyone to be precise. If it's a mix, then it's just educated guesses to be honest.

    That is definitely something no one generally is too upset about. He is probably just quiet.
