    I finally got a vacation, away from my beloved birds. Directly across the street here in Troncones, Mexico, is a rooster. Make that 7 roosters who refuse to let me sleep. I think they're cochins who the locals use for fighting. Beautiful birds. I don't eat chickens, but have never come this close to wanting too.

    [​IMG] That would drive me crazy too. I X2 what was said above, any way you can get your hands on some earplugs? Or even just cotton with some vaseline?

    That's tough on vacation if you want to sleep in.

    I worked at a parrot breeding facility in Costa Rica, I had to go to work early but needed no alarm clock.
    I got used to the roosters crowing early and grew to like it. The only downside was the mid night thunderstorm that would start them all up. I always wondered why ALL Costa Ricans seem to get up at sunup.
    I recommend going to bed early with the chickens.

    Thanks, all! Day 3 and still no sleep. Maybe I'll just go lay on the beach and let the tide carry me away...
