I have 2 new cochens approximately 6 months old , 1 black and 1 buff. My black chick is huge (looks like a turkey) while my buff is much smaller. The big girl has decided to crow for now 3 weeks every morning at 7. She crows before my little man does. We call her JJ, short for Joan Jet (singer). She doesn't have a pretty crow, it sounds like a sick goose. Sooo loud! We just laugh at her, we figure she was, (as they say) Born this way!
