One view: * No, if they eat and defecate regularly and continue with their normal behavior without the crowing, you need not be concerned. Another view: * My rooster stops crowing in the winter. Yet Another View: * You don't need to worry you may in fact have two hens that some times crow and have not started to lay eggs yet.
