    I'm curious is anyone else has seen this or knows why . I have a 8 y/o rooster that crows around 1:30 am every morning like clock work . He just started doing it the last few months . Then he still crows like normal with the others around 4 am . I've checked on him at night when he crows and nothing is bothering him .he has his girls roosting with him like normal

    Could there be any new lights in the area that are too bright and making him think it's morning?

    No new lights that I've noticed . Where I keep my chickens is all surrounded by woods

    Strange. I have a rooster that gets confused when it's full moon and will crow in the middle of the night, but that's not every night.
