    i have 4 bantam roosters in with my flock of hens.
    They are all the same age but two of the roosters have been growing for 3 months and the other 2 don't crow at all. They are plenty old enough.

    The roosters never fight or pick on each other
    They actually follow each other around and cant stand being away from each other. The 2 who don't crow are just as big.

    I was just wondering if anybody has any ideas or if this had happend before. They are old english game bantams

    Mine was hatched on 7/20/09 something like that and crowed for the first time this week! He just was waiting for the right time perhaps!

    I can't get mine to shut up! Maybe he can come over and teach yours how.
    As I type this, he has been going continually all morning.
