    My young 3.5 month old welsummer cockrel began crowing a few days ago--can he now make babies?

    I wouldn't think he can yet. Mine has been "crowing" or at least trying to for a couple months now, but my ladies aren't of laying age yet and I haven't seen him show any females any attention yet except for me [​IMG]
