how long does it take for bantam cockrels to reach sexual maturity

i have columbian wyandottes but my rooster died unfortunately

on the upside i have two cockrels so wanted to know how long till they can do the deed

is it the same time as hens take to lay ?

about six months?

im new to breeding lol

thanks

Columbian wyandotte bantams are a very nice breed, and not that easy to come by!

With most birds, it can take the males a little longer to get with the swing of things, so it may be that they'll have to be seven or eight months old before things start to click.
