    Hi all just have a question about our 9 week old Easter egger roo. He started crowing about 2 weeks ago but the flock all got some kind of cold and he quit crowing. Now everybody is better but he hasn't started to crow again. There are not any older roos that would intimidate him we have 4 roos and he was the first to crow. I actually love the sound of a rooster crowing on a farm and cant wait for them to start again. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Most of mine haven't even started until 16-17 weeks old - I've had only a couple start as early as 9 weeks. Give it some time and I'm sure he'll get back into his rhythm.
