Hello everyone, I am a ameture backyard chicken person. About a month ago I got 5 hens and a rooster for my coop and so far my family enjoys their behavior, my parents visit from Florida just to enjoy the chickens and farm area. Well my rooster crows in the morning like in the movies but now also crows during the day...not sure why but he does.
Anyone know why? don't say it's stress, he is the only male in the yard with five healthy feathered females all to himself and between the kitchen scraps my parents give them, the all day free ranging and high quality layer food I buy they eat like royalty. So why does he crow?? is he thanking god for the great life? is he letting everyone that he is the man and he knows it? or... is he try to complete the last step or driving the humans out of the house and off the property so he can declare it all for himslef???
Please advise Thanks
