    Hi there. May sound like a silly question but: Why do roosters cockle doodle doo?

    Just wondering.

    Well, it doesnt sound like that to me. Why they do it is probably territorial. In spanish, it's an entirely different sound so it's just an interpretation. My blue Orp sounds like a wolf howling sometimes. And they answer each other, like answering a challenge or announce how big and bad they are.
