Mine does too! He is about 8 months and he crows all the time. My family has taken to walking through the house and yard and crowing back at him. So instead of listening to one crowing rooster non-stop I get to listen to him, my husband, and both children. Luckily I have great selective hearing so I have decided to just ignore them all. We also have no neighbors that we can see so I guess I will just let them all get tired of it. Here is the only one that has an excuse for this behavior.
Is this something that just started?The problem is that he crows at 12am 2 am 4 am 5am. I mean all the time we can not sleep

That seems like a lot of night time crowing. I agree with aart. I would check to make sure something is not disturbing him at night, whether it is lighting, predators, neighbors barking dogs, etc. I live fairly rural and prowl around my property late at night. There are several cockerels off in the distance that I can sometimes hear in the early morning (1-2am), but usually I have heard barking dogs or loud engine, etc., before I hear the crowing. So far mine doesn't crow in the middle of the night (they are secured in the coop), just about an hour before sunrise and then of course throughout the day.Is this something that just started?
Any changes to the coop/run, flock population, predator events?
If it's not something new, I'd seriously think about getting rid of him.
