    I have a weird question: When do cockerels start behavior causing puberty?

    Cockerels usually start exhibiting sexual behaviors around 4 months old.
    Some start earlier, some start later.

    I am not sure what you mean by that but they will start to crow and mating hens maybe around 6 to 7 months of age.
