Is it possible that the heat lamp in the coop is making the rooster think it's a Red Light District? In the evening he ambles over to the chicken house door like a gunslinger (his spurs shining in the red glow). I plugged in a radio to muffle the noise but he got louder! All together it's a bit boom chicka bwa bwa out there. But the good news is the ladies are laying again, 5 eggs today!
