Silent cockerel

Recommended Posts

We recently raised 8 chicks and were unlucky that 6 of the 8 were boys.    5 were returned to the breeder when they started crowing.   The remaining one is now 4 months old and is an anxious boy.  He still hasn’t made a sound.

He’s definitely a boy.  He has a huge red comb and wattles, long thick legs and a very upright stance.  If he crows he goes as we can’t keep a crowing boy 

I’m assuming that he was bullied by the other 5 and learned to be quiet for self preservation.  Should I be concerned that he’s silent?
