    Our first shipment of chicks hatched 8 weeks ago and this morning we were greeted with the cutest little crow from one of our Cochin Bantams. He is more mature looking than his brothers but this seems much earlier than I remember from the past. I haven't had Cochin Cockerels before, so maybe it's a breed thing. Just curious what others have experienced.

    Earliest I've had one crow was about 9 weeks if I remember right.

    Got woke up by a six week old cockerel a few days ago. Had a bantam cochin that started trying to crow at three weeks (crreeeeee-cre-cre-creeeeee!). I've heard of them as young as a few days.
