a large shiny black bird with a loud cry
the cry of a cock
make the cry of a cock
(of a baby) make sounds showing pleasure
"his brag is worse than his fight"
"whenever he won we were exposed to his gasconade"
"She crowed with joy"
"The cocks crowed all morning"
A public accusation might make him crow and show off what a tough guy he was.

Nor is there any reason to crow about things going wrong.
