so yesterday morning our ameracana rooster crowed for the first time at 6:30, so we set the alarm for 6:00 today in an effort to beat him to the punch cause one of my neighbors loves ALL animals EXCEPT roosters. but he went off at 5:45 this a.m. . so we ran outside to open the coop but he wouldn't stop, it appeared that he was talkin to a couple of other roo's about a half mile away, so after about the 10th crow I had wifey give him a good slap on the nose. he immediately stopped and started pouting. The other roo's around continued but he is staying quiet. It is a shame because his voice is as pretty as he is. Do you think we will have to do this every day or will he catch on that he needs to be quiet. He is smart,he knows his name, does tricks, and comes when he is called,etc... . I like chicken soup but don't wanna kill my roo.
