The timing in crowing is important. Good crowing should start with a
slow tempo, increase to a fast tempo, and then end with a slow tempo
again. This is known as crowing quality.
Crowing quality is more important than the crowing period in a good
Denizli Cock. During a rooster's first year the crowing period is 20
seconds. In the second and third years, this period gets longer.
