My husband and I are night people, so we're usually up no earlier than 10 or 11 AM. The only exception to that is when DH has an early doctors appointment, like he did today. When I got up this morning @ 7 AM I went out first thing to check on the chickens. My adult rooster was crowing. Then the two cockerels (a turken & a cornish X) would crow, then.....yep, the silkie cockerel is crowing now too. This went on for a solid hour! So now we have a fine "cocka-doodle-do" from my brahma, a pitiful "eer-er" from the turken, a deep "cocka-doodle (minus the do)" from the CX, and a tiny little "er-er" from the silkie. Since the juveniles are currently housed just outside the bedroom window, I practically had to shout to make myself heard, speaking to my DH. I told him that anyone driving up, that didn't know better, would think we were running a freakin' rooster ranch!
