My rooster has been making some strange growling sounds lately. He does this at any time, no matter what he's doing. Sometime he seems to do it if something upsets him . It almost sounds like a loud burb. Is this normal? What does it mean when he does this?

I read where roosters have different noises based on the type of predator. Sometimes mine do the quick BAWK! at the sign of a predator (usually the aerial kind), other times it's the BAWK followed by the growl. Maybe the growl is just a reminder to the hens to be very careful.

yup, if i understanding right,, its normal, their way of talking, letting all know where he is, warnings,,,,,,least i hope its normal lol.
now it would be different if it was a gargling, or raspy every time he breathed.
