All of my roosters start crowing around 5-6 months old. Roosters will usually make their first attempt at crowing between 5 and 8 weeks old. At that time the males in the flock will also start trying to establish dominance over the other roosters of the same age.Even the adult rooster gets challenged which always results in a quick tail kicking and a dash for cover for the upstart. This is usually the point when the culling begins and those feisty little upstarts are either off to the freezer or to another farm. more
