    My roosters crow more when there is something new in the coop or run. Have you changed anything?

    I had a similar problem with my rooster. I then realized that he was alerting the hens when a certain hawk was patrolling the skies above for a tasty meal.

    I agree. Something is upsetting them. May be time for a bit of investigation (or lurking and watching).

    something is bothering them - maybe you have to sit outside inconspicuously to see what they are looking at.
