    i am getting ready to purchase my first batch (25), and am trying to figure out if I want males, females or both. I live in a tight neighborhood though and can't have roosters crowing. Will a cockeral crow before 8 weeks? Thanks

    I don't recall them crowing that early.

    What you can do, is just butcher each one that starts to crow.
