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.
