I heard first crow attempt at 9 weeks out of my little banty boys and they were just starting to tidbit at 10 weeks when they left. I find the Old English banties definitely mature early.

Yes these little farts are attempting to crow (if that's what you would call it. Lol)
Tonight one even strutted up to a full grown hen.
Until she put him in his place of course
