    Mine start at about 1 am and once one starts its a chain reaction till all 5 of them are going at it. It starts when one hears a distant rooster crowing. I live in a rural Thai village and there are hundreds of chickens about. They crow to each other all through the night - but especially when there is a bright moon.

    When I had only 2 roosters I used to put them in a large dog crate and put it in the darkest park of my garden, completely covered with a thick sack to cut off all light. This worked OK. In the end I just got used to it and I never notice it any more.

    I think the key is don't let them see any light at night. But they still might crow if they can hear another rooster.

    Good luck.
