    Some roosters crow more than others. Our bantams simply don't stop crowing! Do you mean that he's crowing all night? Is there a light on in the coop? He shouldn't be crowing in the night (dark) unless something is disturbing him.

    Of my 5, only one really crows. He starts around 7 in the morning and crows here and there during the day. Not too much, thankfully. As soon as everyone is in the coop for the night he stops. He's the boss out there, so I guess the other 4 just aren't allowed to crow.

    We did have a banty roo that never shut up. Every 5 minutes, all day long. And if we had a bonfire at night, he would see the glow and start crowing. Gibbs the bigmouth no longer lives here.

    Not every day is the same but ours often starts long before sunrise. We had him in a cage inside the house recently because he was recovering from combat with another rooster. That night he was nearly comatose but at 5:30 am the next morning while it was still completely dark he started crowing. That was his only night indoors.
