Weeks ago we were sad to give away our cochin cockerel Oliver, we can't have roos(or chickens shhhh). He was said to have crowed around 10 times; this was his first time crowing. I wish I had more time to determine how much he would crow BUT we couldn't take the risk. I got home in the afternoon and he didn't make a peep. Do cockerels usually crow quite a bit to get the hang of it and then spread out their crows?
