    Not sure of the math exactly, but it sounds like he was over 12 weeks when he was cropped. That is late but not impossible to get a successful crop from. More likely, the extended lengths of time that the ears were left down was the bigger issue.

    I would get him taped up and keep him taped.

    i agree with this completely.

    it sounds like you are leaving them untaped too long, dont leave them untaped for more than a couple hours and dont give them a chance to flop. every time they flop the longer it will take to get them standing.
