It's mainly territorial. The rooster is announcing to the world that the space he is in is HIS and his only. It's like he's saying, "Hey, this is my space!" There are other reasons suggested as to why they crow as well, such as in response to being scared or when their hen cackles after laying an egg.
but i have three roosters in the same run and they all together
Did they grow up together? They have established a hierarchy (aka "pecking order"). The dominant rooster will most likely do the most of the crowing and breeding with the hens.
yes they are all brothers and all of them hop on to the hen but when one does they the other's peck him.
Eventually the three of them will injure the hens. This is not a good scenario.
